Description

Fashion Revolution is a global non-profit organization that advocates for ethically fair, environmentally-conscious made clothing. 

Every year, the community gathers globally to campaign for Fashion Revolution Week. This event happens every year during the week of April 24th, commemorating the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. During this week, Fashion Revolution teams from different countries campaign to advocate for systemic change in the fashion industry.

Fashion Revolution hosts several events for its members. On the one hand, you can participate in workshops, webinars, and expert talks from the global team. The Fashion Revolution's Open Studio features designers from all around the world who are trying to build a sustainable fashion industry, and it's also a great source of virtual events for you to participate in.

On the other hand, Fashion Revolution teams in different countries organize independently. This means they organize their own events and campaigns. You can join a team in your nearest location or follow them on social media to hear about new virtual events and in-person campaign opportunities. This will allow you to connect with a local network of like-minded people who are also advocating for conscious fashion.

Additionally, the community offers several free resources for members. You can download a "get involved pack" with actionable steps to create lasting change in your community. There are also whitepapers, reports, surveys, policy toolkits, and other types of expert research for you to learn more.

On the other hand, you can explore how-to guides and educational resources, or enroll in the community's free course about sustainable development goals. Lastly, there is a folder full of digital campaign assets that can help you and your local team to create relevant, impactful campaigns.

Learning Events

The community regularly hosts learning events to spread systemic change in the fashion industry. Fashion Revolution's Open Studio features designers from all around the world who are trying to shift away from the growth, extractivist mindset that deploys the planet and harms people. You can participate in virtual workshops, talks, and webinars. On the other hand, local organizations of the Fashion Revolution from different countries organize their own events. You can follow your nearest organization on social media to stay tuned for future events.

There are also many "get involved packs", that explain actionable steps you can follow to create change. Packs are available for citizens, brands, producers, retailers, trade unions, educators and students, and journalists. You can also access expert research such as the Fashion Transparency Index, the Impact Report, and the Customer Survey, along with relevant whitepapers. Lastly, you can explore the Policy Toolkits to find alternative solutions for the fashion industry in different countries.
