The conference will focus on the fast fashion and a model of fast and low-cost clothing production and consumption that is generating growing concerns about its impacts on the environment and global economies. We analyse its roots consequences and possible solutions, addressing a globally significant issue. The conference offers a critical persective on the effectiveness of current policies, exploring possible changes needed to promote more sustainable practices. The goal is to stimulate constructive discussion and provide ideas for actions that can help reduce the environmental impact of fashion.
