Webinar Series

Fashion Takes Action is a non-profit established in 2007, with a mission to advance sustainability in the fashion industry through education, awareness, research and collaboration. Since 2014, our World Ethical Apparel Roundtable, or WEAR conference and webinar series, has brought together the entire fashion system to learn, network and collaborate. Each month, we address the barriers to sustainability through our WEAR webinar series.

MATERIAL INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY

Technological innovation is growing and evolving every day, and with that, comes a new generation of sustainable materials. In the fashion industry, there are many forward-thinking brands that are rethinking traditional design and manufacturing processes and opting for resources and materials that help to “close the loop”.  In doing so, these innovations aim to reduce waste, pollution, and harmful greenhouse gas emissions, and support circular business models that greatly benefit the environment. The challenge, however, lies in the wide-scale adoption of these technologies, without compromising design, quality, and price point. 

This month, in collaboration with Evoco, Dupont, and Lenzing, we are presenting a series of panel discussions and fireside chats focused on material innovation and sustainability in an effort to highlight and share the innovative work that’s currently supporting circularity and driving change in the fashion industry. 

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!
