Description

A 3-day knowledge exchange event organised by Dr Stepahnie Schreven and Dr Kristina Auxtova. Event focused on discussions of the social and environmental unsustainability of fast fashion. With 9 presentations from 12 speakers from academia, industry, local charities, and the V&A and with 141 registered participants (40 from outside UoD), the sessions brought together students, academics, designers, businesses, charities and those interested in changing their own (or their organisation’s) behaviours in terms of sustainability and fashion. The impact of this event is the contribution to raised awareness of the unsustainability of fashion among our audiences and to challenging unsustainable practices in the fashion industry. The event further reflects and contributes towards the School’s strategic commitment to PRME.
