For our 2021 Masterclasses on The Sustainable Fashion Collective we are visiting the Sustainable Development Goals, with a holistic look at how fashion and creative business can play a role in building stronger societies and creating healthy environments through positive solutions.
This session will look at Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
This will be our first in-person event back since March 2020!
There will be a 10-15 minute introduction into the key issues within the theme of Sustainable Cities and Communities, where our guest experts will also introduce themselves. We will then dive into a 30-40 minute panel discussion.
Our guests (to be announced) will be from a myriad of industries so that we are able to consider fashion and textiles within a wider setting. We will be looking at topics including:
- reduction of waste, and circularity
- building nourishing communities of active participants
- utilising resources to have a positive rather than extractive impact
- material innovation to support growing populations and the climate crisis
There will be time before and after the event to network with one another, with us and with our guests.
We will film the event so that those who cannot be around in person can also partake in the discussion via Live Q&A (or send your questions beforehand). This will be made available as part of the Masterclass launching November 2021.
Moderated by both Charlie Bradley Ross, director of Offset Warehouse and The Sustainable Fashion Collective, and Stephanie Steele, the business' marketing and fabric guru.
Free to attend, but you must be a registered Member of The Sustainable Fashion Collective to attend: click here to join.
Please book on Eventbrite to secure your space, and we will check that you are a registered Member. You will then receive update email notifications from Eventbrite with event reminders.
It is really important that you cancel your ticket if you are no longer able to attend. This is limited capacity, and in current circumstances, we really want to ensure that we have both a good vibe but also safe protocols.
We will be in a separate room in the pub, but you will need to access the room and toilets via other people. Masks are encouraged while moving around and during the event, but not mandatory. We will have hand sanitiser for your use. Seating will be distanced.
