We are a growing population - and the world population will keep growing. To be able to support everyone there is a huge need to be more sustainable in our everyday lives. Most of us are wearing clothes - so why not start there? This time at the Trendspotting @ Lund University we will be exploring the world of sustainable fashion. How can we work with the current norms and what alternatives are there? We will be listening to experts in the field, both as key note speakers and in a following panel discussion. The experts are researchers and practitioners from Lund University and our wider community that will offer their perspectives.
