Presented by Lucy Adam, Fashion and Textile Sustainability educator. This online presentation will provide participants with current and relevant information about some of the most pressing environmental and social impacts in fashion and textiles. By looking at teaching strategies that enable sustainability education to thrive and have impact opportunities are provided for all learners to develop the knowledge and skills required to live sustainably.
Lucy Adam is an experienced Vocational Education teacher at RMIT University and is committed to engaging students in learning about sustainability in a fashion and textiles context. Lucy specialises in creating highly interactive and immersive learning programs that allow students to develop and apply their knowledge in a diverse range of learning experiences.
Lucy believes that education plays a critical role in transformation and positive change and that education must provide a framework for students to meaningfully connect with sustainability concepts and examine existing values regarding designing, making and consumption.
Over the last 10 years Lucy has written and presented papers on sustainability education in fashion and textiles, undertaken multiple courses with sustainability experts to deepen her knowledge and is currently doing a master's by research (Master of Design – Fashion and Textiles) with a focus on developing impactful teaching and learning through values, practice, and connection.
As a firm supporter of lifelong learning Lucy would like to share some of her knowledge and experience in sustainability education.
