What are the social and ecological implications of the fashion industry? How do mainstream perceptions about sustainability influence environmental policy-making for the fashion industry? What alternatives can we explore to address sustainability and social justice, including fair wages and working conditions throughout the fashion supply chain? What role, if any, does advertising play?

It can be challenging to envision fashion practices that are both ecologically and socially responsible without falling victim to greenwashing marketing schemes or disregarding the underlying power structures and socio-ecological problems. During the two-day event, we aim to delve into these issues and seek ways to challenge and transform the prevailing understanding of sustainable fashion. Our goal is to identify creative alternatives for collective action.
