FUNDRAISE FOR FEI
Are you interested in doing some fundraising for the project? We are always looking for extra money so we can support more students and tutors who have an interest in ethical fashion. For more information follow this link
We are currently looking for tutors and students of fashion related courses based in Scotland to join our NEW steering group to feed in to the development of a Scottish Ethical Fashion Education Network. This DFID funded project will begin in September 2011 and last for one year. The group will meet 3 times over the year to guide the project in the appropriate direction and evaluate the project. The meetings provide tutors and students with the valuable opportunity to network with people from other universities who have an interest in ethical issues within the fashion industry.
If you are a tutor interested in being involved please email hannah_At_fashioninganethicalindustry.org (replace_AT_with@)
We encourage each Scottish university or college to have a student representative at steering group meetings. If you are a student and are interested in becoming a student representative, or are a tutor and could identify a suitable student, then please do contact us.
