Future Fashion is the new movement for sustainable textiles and conscious consumer behavior in Baden-Württemberg. It is initiated and coordinated by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ). Slow fashion is increasingly conquering the mainstream, and numerous eco and fair fashion labels are gaining a steadily growing following. That's a good thing, because social and ecological grievances in the value chain, including catastrophes in textile production facilities worldwide, are alarming. The scandalous news awakens us to change something. Fashion makers are even more called upon to produce in a socially and environmentally friendly manner and fashion lovers should try to consume sustainably.

If you have any questions, please contact Carina from the Baden-Württemberg Youth Initiative

Dinner with Franz Untersteller

We are giving away a dinner with the Environment Minister Franz Untersteller. We use the proceeds to support a project in Burundi.

Anyone who has always wanted to ask the Baden-Württemberg Environment Minister Franz Untersteller questions in a very private atmosphere now has the chance to do so. In collaboration with stars4fans, we are giving away a dinner with him.

The proceeds from donations go to the project “Career-oriented empowerment of young adults in Burundi”. Even with completed training, young people in Burundi often cannot find work. In order to improve their situation, they have joined forces in the RJIC association to secure their professional future through joint activities. With seminars and workshops, they strengthen the assumption of personal responsibility and offer training in agricultural techniques, food processing as well as in craft and social professions. 

You can buy the tickets for €2,50/piece here Kaufen.

Clothes swap party

Future Fashion exchange frenzy on March 17, 2018 at the Stuttgart Adult Education Center.

Future Fashion's second clothing swap party is about to begin. From 10 a.m. to 15 p.m., fashion lovers swap bags, pants and dresses and find their new favorite outfits. The day of action invites you to take a closer look at your own textile consumption and its effects and to get to know sustainable alternatives.

Anyone who wants to can bring up to ten items of clothing without prior notice. You can then pack up as much as you brought with you at various stands. The two “Future Fashion on Tour” city tours through Stuttgart take place at the same time.

The clothes swap party is organized by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ), the Campaign for Clean Clothes (CCC), the Baden-Württemberg Association for Development Policy (DEAB eV) and the youth initiative of the Baden-Württemberg Sustainability Strategy.

The Development Cooperation Foundation wants to provide impetus for a globally responsible Baden-Württemberg. Everyone can take responsibility and make the world more fair. The clothing swap party is therefore an opportunity to advocate for sustainable fashion and conscious consumer behavior.

Poster exhibition on living conditions of textile workers in Bangladesh.

As part of the Future Fashion movement there is the poster exhibition 'The life and struggle of garment workers'.

The exhibition provides information about the living conditions of textile workers in Bangladesh and highlights social injustices in the textile industry. It is awarded free of charge by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ).

The Future Fashion movement advocates for conscious and sustainable textile and fashion consumption in Baden-Württemberg and shows exciting alternatives to conventional consumption.

Taslima Akhter's message to consumers.

“Poverty is not natural, it was created by humans and can therefore be overcome and eradicated through appropriate measures. The eradication of poverty is not an act of mercy, but of justice.” (Nelson Mandela, Nobel Peace Prize winner)

Eradicating global poverty is just one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations. For the first time, the 2030 Agenda combines all three dimensions of sustainability – social, economic and ecological. It is something that all countries in the world strive for because the following applies: global challenges can only be solved together.

The #17Goals website makes the 2030 Agenda better known and presents various projects and initiatives that contribute to its implementation. In addition to numerous practical tips for everyday life, you also get to know news from politics, business and society. Whether self-made trash design for a sustainable lifestyle or wind energy from drones, a wide variety of ideas for climate protection are clearly presented. References to local practical examples such as poetry slams on the 17 goals also strengthen public awareness of the topic of sustainability and motivate readers to take their own action. They can immediately find out about timely, nationwide events related to the 2030 Agenda and take part in Rap for Refugees in Hamburg, the school cinema weeks in Hesse or the Vegginale in Hanover.

The big advantage of the website is that it primarily targets schoolchildren and students. By linking to the social media channels Instagram or Twitter, you can easily come across projects like the Advent calendar with 17 sustainable actions. At the same time, the 17 goals are discussed in a playful way at music festivals such as Lollapalooza and their realization is made more attractive.

The entire #17Goals project is carried out by Engagement Global on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). It serves as a guide for every individual’s commitment to development policy.
