If you cycle to work or to university, you are not only doing something good for yourself, but also for the environment. The Ruhr-Universität Bochum offers various services for cyclists.
Just throw away what's broken?! That hits both the wallet and the ecological conscience. In the AStA's bicycle self-help workshop, bicycles can be repaired with expert help. The necessary tools are also available. Use is free for students, all others are asked for a small donation.
The AStA Repair Café is also about tackling the throwaway society with knowledge transfer and community spirit - here, visitors not only learn a lot while repairing, but also appreciate their belongings more.
The Repair Café also cooperates with the Bochum Library of Things. Items ordered in advance - tools, kitchen appliances, garden tools - can be picked up at the café.
Two other AStA projects ensure that resources are not wasted:
For example, the Fair Divider - shelves and a refrigerator for food on the first floor of the student house - takes food and is ready to be filled and served.
Bookcases take in unloved and unused books, which are then in turn freely available to others.
In the student garden behind the RUB dinning hall, students from all departments garden and educate themselves on fauna and flora. In a dyer's garden, plants even grow from which natural dyes are made.
