Creating a better future with your wardrobe
Did you know that everything you wear has an impact on our future on our planet? There is so much to learn about fashion, especially about how our choices can have a huge effect on the water, air, land, climate and people around the world.
If you are a teacher wanting somewhere to start, or someone keen for more information on climate and fashion – this is the page for you.
Here’s a handy link to this brief introductory presentation that summarises the impact of fashion and the creative, new solutions that we now have to solve the challenges of modern fashion.
We also think this short film from Ealing primary school pupils is a great way to get the conversation AND practical action started!
Here are some more links to learn more about the impact of fashion. (If sharing these links with young people, please review carefully to assess suitability for the age of your audience.)
