I have introduced a huge cultural shift in London College of Fashion’s (LCF) garment and textile workshops by transforming the induction process to introduce sustainable working practices to students, engendering behavioural shifts with demonstrable outcomes.
I have actively sought to educate and form networks both with my own students and across the college as well as externally, forming relationships and connections which enable students to accelerate sustainable thinking and behaviour. I have spread my knowledge and resources across technical teams and with the opportunity to act up to Site Technical Coordinator I have formulated plans to share this more widely across the college.
I intend to inspire students and staff alike.
Top 3 learnings:
1. Cultural change can take time but working hard and constantly promoting sustainable practice will pay off.
2. Students can be a huge inspiration, learn from them!
3. Teaching the value of materials and providing sharing facilities can dramatically reduce waste and encourage resourcefulness.
