Innovation is the key to unlocking the changes needed to transition to net zero carbon emissions globally.
If we can "imagine" real change for 2030, 2050, 2060 there can be a generational shift towards innovative methodologies and technologies. This will ensure it is a future we have created and not one that climate change has dictated for us.
"The best way to predict the future is to create it" - Peter Drucker
This statement was made in the context of business leadership and driving a business towards a vision of the future, but it is the perfect descriptor for the need to innovate climate change solutions towards a net zero future.
The future of fashion is innovation … in the materials we use, and the end of life impacts of our products to prioritise the environment .. the new normal to counter fast fashion.
We need to attack the source of the problem … why are will still using plastics and other fossil fuel based or environmentally harmful materials?
Let’s work together to change this dynamic. Imagine textiles that are made from waste biomass or regeneratively grown plant based inputs, completely free of plastics and pollutants and completely biodegradable or re-usable as ingredients to produce more textiles … true circularity.
What else can we visualise that will truly transform the way we way adapt fashion to the environmental realities of the coming decades?
