The campaign.

Since the eviction in autumn of 2013 of homeless people from Vienna´s City Park, one of the most important sleeping areas for homeless in Vienna, hundreds of people suffer the consequences. In order to draw attention to this issue, Gewista developed the first heating 6-sheet by replacing florescent tubes with heat lamps. For €1 people waiting for the bus could enjoy warmth a few minutes, while the donated money helped to slightly improve the lives of homeless people.
