Sustainable Fashion Curriculum at Textile Universities in Europe – Development, Implementation and Evaluation of a Teaching Module for Educators

  • Fashion DIET (Sustainable Fashion Curriculum at Textile Universities in Europe – Development, Implementation and Evaluation of a Teaching Module for Educators) is an EU funded project under the Key Action “Strategic Partnerships” of the Erasmus+ Programme. From September 2020 until August 2023, the international project has been developing teaching and learning arrangements under the lead management of the University of Education Freiburg. Partner universities are Reutlingen University in Germany, Gheorghe Asachi Iaşi University of Technology in Romania and Trakia University Stara Zagora in Bulgaria. The devastating environmental and social implications of the fast fashion and textile industry which prevailed throughout the last decades make it of high relevance to integrate the targets of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the UN into the entire textile value chain, i.e. production, consumption and disposal sites, to make it fully sustainable and positive for people and the ecosystems. The upcoming transformation of the textile and fashion industry towards sustainability therefore requires nothing less than a continuous implementation of the guiding principle Education for Sustainability Development (ESD) in education and training. The Fashion DIET project aimed to foster the process of ESD implementation in national educational systems. The project’s major goal was to develop an ESD further education module in the context of fashion and textiles for universities since teachers and learners will have to cooperate more internationally in the future to establish the guiding principle of ESD permanently on an international level. Furthermore, teaching and learning material derived from this for vocational schools and secondary education has been developed and made available as Open Educational Resources (OER) via the database Glocal Campus.
