How can we strengthen design and material reuse networks in rural places?

April 2022

After our first community discussion focusing on rural places, led by designer Hannah Clinch based in Dunoon, Argyll, what became clear was a shared, hopeful determination for a more sustainable approach to textile and clothing production in Scotland, as well as frustrations around keeping local textile and manufacturing skills alive due to them being undervalued in our society and by the government.

How can we empower young people to be changemakers?

May 2022

Led by Izzie Eriksen, Founding Director at ApparelXchange, discussion covered the disjointed approach to sustainable fashion education in primary and secondary schools, the inspiring people and organisations tackling this, how actionable learning opportunities empower young people to be activists for the future, and that textile education requires a countrywide approach that can be sustained and reach all students in Scotland.
