Event Details

Part 2: Panel discussion session and concept launch.

A panel of experts will demonstrate the age-old concept of a stitching discussion which has recently been adapted to a virtual experience by Fashion Revolution Scotland. (An industry specific example of the Friday Afternoon Think-tank concept launched earlier in the evening)

The production, consumption and disposal of apparel threatens environmental and social justice on a devastatingly large scale. Can the cultural concept of ‘fashion’ be transformed? And can this industry rise creatively to the challenge of an international crime of ecocide on the horizon? How could the law be welcomed as a guardrail and guidance system for net zero apparel?

Speakers:
* Professor Kate Fletcher, Fashion and sustainability pioneer
* Sophie Dembinski, Head of Public Policy & UK Country Manager at Ecosia
* Mairi Lowe – Sustainable Fashion Scotland
* Jojo Mehta, Stop Ecocide International
* Karen Finn, Fashion Revolution Scotland
* Galahad Clark, Vivobarefoot Co-Founder and Chief Ecosystem Officer

PS: For fullest enjoyment we recommend signing up for both parts, relax for the evening with nibbles and a nip of Bruichladdich single malt whisky or savour The Botanist, an artisanal gin from the island of Islay.
