Prior every Youth Fashion Summit a series of webinar provides the students with information and prepares them for the intense workshop the days before the Copenhagen Fashion Summit. The webinars seek to engage the students from the start, prompting them to reflect and work on solutions that prepare them for the summit and enable them to face the industry in a confident and credible way.
Below you can find content from the prior Youth Fashion Summits containing student testimonies, students demand, webinars, process tools and outcome proposals. You will also find publications and links related to Youth Fashion Summit.
The creation behind this e-booklet is twofold. It is partly to document the processes and discussions involved in organising an event like `Youth Fashion Summit´ as well as its outcome. The other important purpose is to collect, condense and communicate all the teaching methods, educational material and knowledge that have been accumulated throughout our journey. We have tried to gather and summarize the most important points necessary for a sustainable development curriculum within the fashion and lifestyle industry. With this in mind, we have developed a Tool Box is available to download.
You are welcome to use the articles and tools for noncommercial educational purposes only and with reference to KEA – Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.
YOUTH FASHION SUMMIT 2012
The concept “THE VOICE OF THE NEXT GENERATION” was born.
The first YOUTH FASHION SUMMIT prior to The 2012 Copenhagen Fashion Summit was held gathering 100 students from 16 design and business schools in Europe. The overall focus was the consumer’s engagement through Co-creation, with a focus on sustainability themes through 7 C´s.
After a full day workshop the 100 students were ready to present their framework and 7 demands to the participants at The 2012 Copenhagen Fashion Summit, attended by today’s decision makers in the fashion and apparel industry.
