Mon­day 9 Novem­ber from 10am t0 5pm the AM­FI – Am­s­ter­dam Fash­ion In­sti­tute and ArtEZ In­sti­tute of the Arts (Mod­elec­toraat & gen­er­al stud­ies de­part­ment dA­capo) are hold­ing an in­ter­na­tion­al sym­po­sium en­ti­tled Be­yond Green, Good De­sign, in the World Fash­ion Cen­tre in Am­s­ter­dam. A va­ri­ety of guests, in­clud­ing sus­tain­able de­sign­er and con­sul­tant Kate Fletcher, will be giv­ing their per­son­al per­spec­tives on the the­me. The aim of the sym­po­sium is to provide in­for­ma­tion to stu­dents and teach­ing staff in high­er ed­u­ca­tion, and to stim­u­late them to de­vel­op a vi­sion of their pro­fes­sion­al re­spon­si­bil­i­ties which goes fur­ther than mere­ly fol­low­ing ‘green’ fash­ion trends.
