Event description
Radical changes to the textile industry are essential to stand any chance of achieving responsible consumption and production globally-SDG12

About this Event

More clothing is being produced, consumed, and thrown away than ever before. This is putting immense pressure on our planet. With the hugely damaging global growth of ‘fast fashion’, clothing production has doubled from 2000 to 2014, with more than 150 billion garments now produced annually, and 73% of all textiles ending up in landfill or incineration.

As part of the EU funded project "Making Europe Sustainable for all", World Vision is hosting a workshop at UCC on the topic of sustainable fashion. Join us for an evening of lively discussions, looking at the challenges of 'fast fashion' and focusing on solutions - because radical changes to the textile industry are inevitable!?
