‘Sustainability in Fashion: Aligning the Industry to the SDGs’

We aim to provide the tools and strategies to take action and achieve strong progress towards a sustainable fashion industry. By bringing a global perspective to designers’ and buyers’ daily actions, they are able to recognize that every small decision in the product level is part of a bigger framework.

“By choosing the SDGs as a general approach on sustainability for their Masterclass, this great mixture of lecture and workshop is a very good starting point for every university, school or enterprise that wants to take a collective kickstart into contemporary sustainability.”
