RE-FASHION – Education for Sustainable Fashion

The fashion & textile industry is the second largest polluter in the world. Boosting the sustainability of the sector and addressing the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 crisis are the EU-wide concerns, in which the stakes in terms of cross-border pollution effects and impact on the internal market are high. However, since the changes required are drastic, many businesses will be affected due to the lack of specialized education and preparation, especially in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The project aims to help SMEs and consumers to cope with the expected legal and market challenges in the fashion and textiles industry, by increasing their capacity and knowledge through awareness and education. The new ReFashion educational program will be tailored to the SMEs’ needs and offered for free, by making use of innovative digital practices, while the ReFashion Consumer Guide will support consumers to get the right information and be able to change their consumption habits and preferences.
