What Are the Material and Manufacturing Challenges in Making Fashion Sustainable?
2 October, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The event aims to engage academics, industrialists, social enterprises, micro-businesses and the general public in a discussion about current work towards sustainable fashion within a circular economy framework.
The day will be in two parts, with invited speakers. In the morning we would be discussing activities that are taking place at a more national level.
After lunch our speakers will present the work they do within the Leeds area and set challenges, allowing the audience to explore local issues for dealing with fashion and textile waste collaboratively.
This event is in partnership with the University of Leeds, Zero Waste Leeds, and the Economic and Social Research Council.
