Fashion Values: Nature
Understand biodiversity in the context of fashion and create a plan for fashion that protects Earth’s ecosystems.
Discover fashion practices that can protect, restore, and regenerate ecosystems
Nature is the life force that provides us with the air, water, soil, and minerals that sustain life on earth. These elements come together in the clothes we wear.
This course will help you build the knowledge, skills, and connections to reimagine fashion’s practices and develop a plan to put nature first.
You’ll join a community of fashion and sustainability thinkers and doers that have the vision, skills, and commitment to radically transform how we live and work through fashion.
Explore the impact of fashion on biodiversity and the earth’s systems
With more than one million species of plants and animals at risk of extinction, our ecosystems are under stress.
Fashion plays a direct role in this, and on this course, you’ll identify how dominant damaging systems of fashion production and consumption can be transformed to protect natural life on our planet.
Use design thinking to radically rethink fashion products, services, and systems
Very few fashion companies have biodiversity strategies, but you’ll examine the tools and frameworks used by companies who are developing a nature-centred way of working.
You’ll also be set a design thinking challenge, asking you to develop a fashion product, service or system which supports the restoration and regeneration of nature.
