In the past few years, the textiles industry has begun to embrace the topic of the Circular Economy, and are putting targets in place to drive development. The launch of the Global Fashion Agenda in 2017, saw 12.5% of the industry sign up to one or more of the four action points set forward by the industry mandated agenda. However, according to reports to date, little headway has been made in the reaching of these targets. The recent embrace of circular economy by the apparel industry has seen hundreds of apparel brands and textiles businesses worldwide are striving to adopt the circular economy but many lack the know-how to assess their current state and to measure progress, have limited knowledge and understanding of best practices and circular strategies and struggle to establish the right partnerships in order to move from intent to action. In short, while the ‘why’ or the circular economy is understood, the ‘how’ is left largely unanswered.
In order to meet this industry need and close the gap, Circle Economy’s Textiles Programme is excited to launch a suite of educational trainings entitled ‘On Course: Circular Fashion‘. The workshops, which may be taken individually or as a suite, focus on educating and empowering teams across work streams to apply circular strategies in a practical and relevant way.
The suite consists of 5 separate modules, based on 5 themes:
Each module is a full day session combining theory and practice using the guiding framework of the 7 Key Elements and can be tailored to the specific needs of your brand.
