The ultimate objective of the project is to embed social responsibility issues in the teaching of all fashion related further and higher education courses.
Low pay, cramped , hazardous, and unfair working conditions, and few rights or benefits for workers are still widely experienced by garment workers across the world. The way that garment production is managed has a direct impact on the lives of workers in supplier countries.
The activities of all who work in the industry, whether designers or buyers, affect workers all over the world. Students and graduates of fashion courses, as the next generation of industry players, have a critical role to play, and real influence over the way fashion business is managed in the future.
