Dates announced for sustainability events
The initial SATRA Sustainable Footwear Forum was held in Kettering on Thursday 5th December 2019, with some 90 participants considering the many issues faced when trying to produce and retail footwear in a sustainable way. It became apparent that members would like more opportunities to discuss specific aspects of sustainability in smaller groups.
SATRA is therefore organising a number of sustainability workshops in Kettering, UK, during 2020. The first of these – on ‘packaging’ – will be held on 28th April, with another, scheduled for 9th June, focusing on ‘durability and longevity of products’. A third workshop on 9th September will investigate ‘waste reduction’. We also hope to hold a design workshop in the London College of Fashion’s Sustainability Resource Centre, the date of which will be confirmed.
There are also additional forums planned for the USA in May (location and date to follow), and Kettering on 1st December.
