Circular Design Mentor Team

0 likes 0 endorsements

At University I had an academic mentor to guide me on my career, module choices, and general wellbeing. 

In my first job I had a in-company mentor for the same purpose. 

Why not give fashions students a "team of mentors" i.e. 4-5 that are focused on sustainability in fashion to guide them in embedding circular design into their work?

A mentor team would lower the burden on one individual person and give the students a range of perspectives. 

These people could be from academia and also industry from established sustainable fashion companies such as Eileen Fisher and Patagonia and fashion startups like Fruitleather Rotterdam (fruitleather.nl).
