Having grown up with greater awareness of environmental issues than any generation, today's youth represent the single best hope for the implementation of sustainable practices in fashion and the wider society.
The Youth Fashion Summit is an education platform for young talents to become game changers from the bottom up, so they can spark change once they have graduated and are working in the fashion industry.
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."
Imagine the impact teachers could have if they were all committed to being knowledge-based drivers of long-term sustainability.
The Educators Summit is a platform for educators to exchange ideas and experiences on how to effectively teach sustainability and build a strong international network around it. The mission is to bring industry and academia together in order to shorten the distance and unlock the full potential between the discovery-driven academia and the innovation-driven industry, to overcome the challenges facing the fashion industry.
The first of its kind, the Academic Leaders Round Table seeks 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.
