The current pandemic has forced many planned events to be cancelled, changed and postponed. The MESA implementing partners in Ireland – World Vision Ireland and the Irish Environmental Network – had planned a conference focusing on SDGs, Fashion and Waste during Fashion Revolution Week. However, like many others, we had to rethink our plans and cancel the event. These times call for flexibility, creativity and the internet. As we are no longer able to host the conference due to current restrictions, we have adapted our plans.
We are excited to announce our new podcast series “Wardrobe Change: Reimagining Fashion”, a four-part series exploring the potential for the fashion industry to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Set in the context of the current pandemic, it focuses on the impact of waste created by the fashion industry and addresses the need to rethink how we make, wear and re-wear our clothes for a more sustainable future for both people and planet.
We are delighted to have the support from Kerry Bannigan, founder of UN Conscious Fashion Campaign, who will moderate the conversations with other experts and passionate people in this field, such as: Carrie Ann Moran, country coordinator of Fashion Revolution Ireland; Lynn Wilson, Circular Economy Wardrobe; owners of local startups; and many more.
