The event aims to engage a mixed audience (academics, industrialists, interested parties such as social enterprises and micro-businesses and the general public) in a discussion about current work towards sustainable fashion within a circular economy framework. The day would be in two parts, with invited speakers. In the morning we would be discussing activities that are taking place at a more national level. After lunch our speakers will present the work they do within the Leeds area and provide challenges that the audience is invited to collaboratively explore local issues for dealing with fashion and textile waste.
