Webinar Series

Fashion Takes Action is a non-profit established in 2007, with a mission to advance sustainability in the entire fashion system through education, awareness, research and collaboration. In 2014, we launched the World Ethical Apparel Roundtable (WEAR) – now a monthly webinar series –
that brings together thousands of global fashion industry stakeholders to learn from
leading experts and academics. Scroll down for past recordings!

Fashion & the SDGs

A set of 17 global goals – known as the Sustainable Development Goals – were developed by the United Nations in 2015, in consultation with world leaders, international organizations and the general public, to help combat climate change. These goals recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve earth’s resources. This month, we will dive into the goals that relate closest to the fashion industry, and learn from leading experts and brands how the fashion industry can play a critical role in achieving the SDGs within the next 10 years.

Each month, Fashion Takes Action addresses barriers to sustainability through our monthly WEAR webinar series. This month we are addressing Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in fashion and the significant role race plays in your sustainability journey. This series is an opportunity to hear the voices that have been in the shadows for too long, shine a spotlight on those who are leading change, learn how to help dismantle the existing colonial framework and rebuild a culture of inclusivity on the path to sustainability.

Check back soon – these sessions will be announced shortly!
