Having grown up with greater awareness of environmental issues than any previous generation, today's youth represent the single best hope for the implementation of sustainable practices in fashion and the wider society. The goal of Youth Fashion Summit is to equip young talents with the knowledge and networks to become true game changers in their future professions.
Youth fashion Summit AMBASSADOR
"As somebody who came into fashion through an alternative route, I'm increasingly intrigued and interested in the alternative in fashion. And how that alternative way of thinking – be it innovative materials, processes or concept – can become the mainstream. Sustainability in fashion isn't just the 'right' thing to do but it's where the future of fashion lies."
Some teachers are already proactive and great advocates for sustainability, but imagine the impact they could have collectively if they were all committed to being knowledge-based drivers of long-term sustainability. The Educators Summit is a platform for teachers to exchange ideas and experiences on how to effectively teach sustainability and to build a strong international network around it. The mission is to bring industry and academia together in order to unlock their interactive potential and to help overcome the challenges facing fashion.
Academic Leaders' Round Table sought to convene the most influential decision-makers from across fashion education, industry and non-governmental organisations for an intimate discussion informing the development of sustainability in global fashion.
