Partner event at COP26: Ecocide law and fashioning the future

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?

Part 2:
Ecocide law and fashioning the future

The 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)
