Fashion and the Climate Crisis Are Linked.
Join us on Thursday, February 20 for a fascinating presentation by Vivienne Challandes – local administrator/educator with SD64 who teaches student workshops on "My Clothes, My World."
Climate change can be a huge, confusing and sometimes overwhelming topic, particularly for young people. When students learn about these global issues through an engaging and relevant topic like fashion, it equips them with knowledge and empowers them with the tools to become future leaders.
This presentation will show how the Fashion Takes Action program is taught in local schools and how the Program changes the lives and attitudes of students regarding fashion and climate. A fun part of the presentation will be hands-on audience participation in one or more activities from the "My Clothes, My World" program. Whatever your fashion for the evening, you'll enjoy this exploration into climate/fashion connections.
Vivienne is a fourth-generation Gulf Islander with roots on Mayne Island. She is an award-winning artist, curator, and school administrator and Fashion Takes Action facilitator who specializes in textiles and fashion/apparel with a focus on sustainability issues and solutions..
The event at the Salt Spring Public Library Program Room takes place at 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 20, and is free and open to anyone. It is sponsored by the Transition Salt Spring Education Committee and the Salt Spring Library.
