Please tell us what you do in a few lines?

As a fashion designer I launched a brand called ‘Wear a story’ It is a new ready-to-wear clothing line offering items with a meaning to women looking for confort and style. The brand creates one-off pieces, made in Brussels upcycling ancient garments into modern cuts.

According to you, what does it take to be a Changemaker?

A vision of the world, an inspiring way of living and a pinch of obstinacy ! 

What is the Change you would like to see happen in today’s world?

That every person in the word working to make clothes gets decent life conditions through a rewarding and well paid job.

  • Marc Jourdaine from Upcycly

Please tell us what you do in a few lines?

UpCycly has been created after two observations: there is a lack of vegetation in our urban environment; there are two many wastes that are just waiting to be reused.

UpCycly has been fostering, organizing and speeding up the implementation of local and collaborative workshops in order to promote urban biodiversity and responsible furniture making through the recovery of waste (mainly wood pallets).

Concretely, UpCycly brings waste, the tools and the know how and invite everybody to build their own furniture and structure for vegetation.

According to you, what does it take to be a Changemaker?

Stubbornness, be opportunistic, be clever.

What is the Change you would like to see happen in today’s world?

I would like to see a world that find back the balance between development and respect of nature and the environment.
