Description

To act sustainably also means understanding what you stand for; your values, beliefs, intentions, motives and desires for the future. A way to unfold this is through writing and sharing manifestos.

In this activity, students are asked to write manifestos as a way to help them express the types of contributions they want to make in the fashion world. Depending on the course setting, manifestos can either target sustainable fashion as a whole, or individual pillars.

What is the ideology of tomorrow?

Links to Pillar(s)

Cultural - Economic - Environmental - Social

Delivery

STEP 1: INDIVIDUAL

Each student is assigned with either the environmental, economic, cultural or societal pillar. Based on desktop research, the student should collect insights and materials and use these insights to describe a common ideology in ten bullet points.

STEP 2: GROUPS

Students are grouped so that each pillar is represented in a group. Students present their pillar-based ideologies, and together agree on one shared manifesto that engages all four pillars. The manifesto can be excerpts of the four ideologies or a new manifesto that integrates ideologies in one text.


STEP 3: GROUPS

Students are to upload their manifestos, which are collated into a catalogue and shared amongst themselves.
