The world needs… Innovative Creators
ACS International School Hillingdon has announced its ‘The world needs… Innovative Creators’ event on Tuesday 7June, 7.00 - 8.20pm (BST). The virtual event will be themed around responsible consumption and will demonstrate how creativity and innovation are essential to developing new ways to drive behaviour change and motivate people to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Joining the line-up to discuss her inspiring sustainable fashion innovations, Vanessa Nsona is a Malawian fashion designer and the Executive Director of Dorovee, a fashion social enterprise that works with women and young people in marginalised communities to craft fashion and interior accessories using waste materials and indigenous Malawian materials. During the event, Vanessa will discuss the key principals of sustainable fashion and circular design and will explain what people can do to consume clothing and accessories more responsibly, without sacrificing fashion.
Vanessa will speak at the event alongside Dianna Cohen, a visual artist famed for using the plastic bag as her primary material, and co-founder and CEO of Plastic Pollution Coalition, a global alliance of more than 750 organisations working towards a world free of toxic plastic pollution. Dianna will explain how she uses plastic in her artwork to make a visual and social impact, and the everyday strategies people can adopt to reduce the amount of single use plastic they use and throw away.
Addressing the important issue of food waste will be Adam Smith, professional chef, founder of award-winning global initiative The Real Junk Food Project and CEO of Surplus to Purpose. Adam will discuss the importance of responsible food consumption and will share advice for how we can all reduce our food waste, and why this is so important for global sustainable development.
The event will culminate in a panel discussion and Q&A which will delve deeper into how we can all consume natural resources more responsibly.
