Teacher Toolkit

Leadership Skills Start Here

Our suite of educational resources will teach students about the social & environmental impacts of the global fashion industry, while empowering them with the tools and solutions to be more responsible citizens. Our resources are geared towards grade 4-12 students.

Imagine a future of responsible citizens who are able to think critically & act consciously

My Clothes, My World (MCMW) is our school program which offers digital and in-person workshops, lesson plans, and resources focused on the social and environmental impacts of the global fashion industry. Developed to educate and empower students, our aim is to instill an understanding of sustainability in today’s global context.

Since 2014, we’ve held in-person workshops in Toronto and Vancouver. In 2021, we expanded our approach with digital workshops, meeting both Ontario and BC curriculum standards for grades 4-12 across multiple subjects. We now have in-depth, cross-curricular lesson plans tailored to the new Ontario curriculum for grades 5-8 students. All our workshops and lesson plans delve into four primary topics, highlighting the social, environmental, and economic impacts of the fashion industry. With fashion being a significant contributor to climate change, advancing a sustainable fashion sector is crucial for our planet’s wellbeing.

Some highlights of our workshops include:

  • Using fashion as a vehicle to explain current local & global environmental and social issues
  • High student engagement in the workshops through inquiry based learning & critical thinking
  • Hands on activities, videos, group work, and discussion throughout
  • Curriculum aligned
  • Points towards EcoSchool Certification, specifically Teamwork & Leadership 1.2-1.8, Environmental Stewardship 6.1-6.4, Waste Minimization 3.2, and Curriculum
  • Available in French and English (in person only)
