Wonderbag workshop (2017)
In 2017, thanks to the collaboration of Centro Moda Canossa and three of its trainees, the awarness campaign Adopt a stove: No smoke, no waste was transformed into a series of four events organized within the MUSE, in which the girls of the Canossian Institute showed how to sew insulated bags while the staff of Mazingira presented the projects active in Tanzania through informative videos.
