The future is circular!
But what does that mean for the fashion industry? Come and find out from Cynthia, Campaigns Coordinator at Slow Fashion Movement and Co-Founder of Slow Fashion UK. She'll talk about circular business models and what they mean for consumers or brands. Participants can learn what they can do to live a sustainable fashion lifestyle, and gain a sneak peek at SFM’s next campaign.
Our speaker: Cynthia Ko
Cynthia is a behavioural scientist, designer and researcher with a passion for the planet and its people. Her MSc thesis at Delft University of Technology explored the behavioural implications of sustainable service design in the fashion industry, utilising an interdisciplinary approach to meet business, consumer and environmental needs. This project has been featured at Accenture’s “Forward/ Responsible Design” exhibition during the Dutch Design Week in 2020. She continued her sustainability journey at the Blue Links Rotterdam-Marseille Creathon, where she and her team won with their pitch of an algae innovation that would stimulate both social and environmental sustainability between the two major port cities. Now she’s the Campaigns Coordinator at Slow Fashion Movement, a global initiative of over 30k people who have pledged to live a sustainable fashion lifestyle. As a co-founder of Slow Fashion UK, she is determined to mobilise change on a local level as well. Will you join the change too? Come to our event to find out what you can do for the planet, through your clothing choices.
The event will be chaired by Dr Thomas Smith, Assistant Professor in Environmental Geography, Department of Geography and Environment.
