Kursinhalt

Discover who made your clothes, share their stories, and influence global change

Do you ever think about where your clothes come from? On this course, you will lift the lid on the fashion industry as you explore who made your clothes, how, and at what cost.

You will learn a variety of simple techniques to find out how ethical your fashion is for yourself. You will consider the failings of the fashion industry, and ask how the industry can do more globally to value people, the environment and creativity. You will be encouraged to question what you, as an active global citizen, can do to enable change and promote ethical fashion around the world.

This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in ethical fashion, trade, ethics and activism, including those involved in the Fashion Revolution movement. It is also suitable for teachers who want to enrich their school, further education, and higher education curricula.

We will draw together themes from Geography, Fashion and Textile, English Language, English as a Foreign Language, Historical Enquiry, Politics, Sociology, Art, Economics, Environmental Studies, Global Citizenship, Sustainable Development, Personal and Social Studies. It is possible to participate in the course using skills and knowledge acquired outside formal education. Key concepts will be explained in accessible and thought-provoking ways.

You will need access to an internet browser, and word processing software. You will also be encouraged, with our guidance, to use simple online tools to aid, collate, publish and share your findings.
