LEADERSHIP SKILLS START HERE

Young people are future consumers! And fashion leaders are climate leaders. Our program inspires and empowers students to become Agents of Change.

Workshops

My Clothes My World is a comprehensive program striving to foster a future of environmentally responsible citizens who are able to think critically and act consciously.

My Clothes, My World (MCMW) was developed with a holistic focus, and includes a variety of teaching and learning methods such as personal leadership, active and inquiry based learning, democratic role-play, collaboration, value focused thinking, reflection and critical thinking.

Our trained facilitators are equipped with lesson plans that meet your school board curriculum. They are experienced, dynamic, and engaging, and are committed to seeing young people develop important leadership skills.

As consumers we have so much power to change the world by just being careful in what we buy.
