Old Ship, 3 King Street, Richmond, London TW9 1ND UK
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.
With COP26 on the way, for this session we are considering how to create collaborative, inclusive and welcoming communities that will allow us as individuals and as businesses to thrive.
This session will look at education and inclusivity, themes that are covered across the majority of the SDGs.
There will be a 5-10 minute introduction into key issues of the moment, and the floor will be opened up to our guest speakers for a short presentation or debate.
During the session, there will be a few chances for interaction so that we can really listen and learn from one another. Rather than a networking session where you just listen to one speaker, you'll hear from many, and also have the opportunity to take the floor to share your own business.
Our guest speakers 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 also to network with one another, with us, and with our guests.
We are no longer filming our events due to the nature of the networking vibes, so please do make the time to come along.
We will be joined by FASHION REVOLUTION. Delphine Williot, Policy and Research Co-Ordinator will be explaining what the Fashion Transparency Index is, and how we can utilise the information in it.
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.
