My Clothes My World - Non-Profit SHSM Workshop


As a part of the experiential learning component of the Specialist High Skills Major – Non-Profit, Madonna students participated in an informative and interactive program by Fashion Takes Action – My Clothes, My World™ on Monday, December 19th, 2016.


The My Clothes, My World™ workshop was a great opportunity to introduce students to important world issues via one of their favourite topics – fashion! This full day education workshop provided interactive activities that elicited discussion around labour rights, consumerism and environmental degradation. It opened their eyes to the truth about the apparel industry and helped to inspire them to take meaningful action. You can visit the My Clothes My World website here.
As part of the workshop, students were taught how to up-cycle old clothing that they don't want anymore into a reusable tote bag. Today's workshop was an excellent way to learn more about important social and environmental issues, plus provided the opportunity to students to create an ethical and reusable gift for family or friends during the Christmas season!


A special thank you to Tessa Soltendieck for facilitating this awesome workshop for students!
