This online course was a pleasure to follow. Both engaging and interactive, it introduces you to the "basics" of sustainability in a profound and critical way. It makes you question everything: from the company's actions to how you can improve your own behaviour. I highly recommend it to everyone and will make sure to promote it as much as I can.

I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in sustainable & ethical fashion. Clare and Sofia were great facilitators, and managed to condense an incredible amount of information into the 6 week course without it feeling overwhelming. The course content is really well organised - about 3 hours of learning a week - a mixture of videos, podcasts, interviews, quizzes, discussions, reading materials - and then weekly Zoom meetings with other colleagues. Meeting like minded people from around the world has been amazing. Getting to hear their different experiences or recommendations, as well as support and interaction was probably the best part of the course.

The course content on this platform is excellent, easy to follow, and engaging, but the "ace in the hole" is the additions of the FaceBook group and the zooms chats where you get to share and hear ideas from people around the world.

I've absolutely loved doing this course. It was well presented, dynamic and interactive with an impressive bunch of guest speakers talking about the many complex parts of the fashion industry and our environment. And the community calls really made this for me - to be able to chat with other people around the world who share the same values was a joy. I've been a responsible fashion advocate, personally and professionally, for 10 years so this was a brilliant addition to my ongoing learning. And I'm excited about further courses, learning more and keeping the conversation going.
