The focus of this leadership program is to inspire and equip young people with the knowledge and tools to become change agents.
Programs to choose from:
The Secret Lives of Clothes
Students examine the ethical and moral dilemmas facing the textile supply chain – who makes
our clothes, where they are made, and the conditions in which they are made. The focus of this
workshop is on the human aspect of the global supply chain.
Foot Print of Fashion
Students explore the environmental impacts of the fashion industry. This includes
overconsumption, textile waste in landfill and incineration, diminishing resources (such as
cotton and water), pollution and the use of hazardous chemicals. Students gain a deeper
understanding around textile reuse and recycling, waste diversion and sustainability, and how
we need to shift toward a more circular economy.
