The Future Fashion Experts bring knowledge and methods about sustainable clothing and fair and ecological textiles to educational institutions.

On June 7th and 8th, we invited the Future Fashion Experts together with the umbrella organization for development policy in Baden-Württemberg (DEAB) to a training weekend at the academy. Knowledge was expanded and new experts were trained.

Fifteen Future Fashion Experts spent two days working intensively on Educational methods how they can make the textile value chain, the long journeys of clothing and global inequalities in resource use tangible. This can be done, for example, with the EPIZ World Game.

Future Fashion is always about theory (information and knowledge transfer about sustainable clothing) and practice. Upcycling You can never learn enough, which is why the experts have developed new workshops with screen printing and hole-drilling. If many people can do this and do it, we can avoid textile waste and save resources for the production of clothing.

Because Future Fashion in Baden-Württemberg is part of  Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and thus the sustainability strategy, basic training on how ESD works and where it takes place was an important part of the training. Here, we worked out how sustainability issues can be integrated into educational processes and educational locations. This enables our Future Fashion Experts to work better with teachers and trainers and supplement educational offerings with interesting workshops and practical units.

The most important ingredient needed for change and learning, however, is motivation. Francine Feuné, herself a future fashion expert and author, provided inspiration for this. She gave an exclusive reading of her Book “My Family, My Life” held and with the other experts Skill sharing for your own motivation and commitment to change.
