Welcome to “Back to the Future 2030: Textile” an immersive project designed specifically for passionate individuals aged 16 to 25. In this youth exchange, we will get on a journey to uncover the environmental impact of fast fashion and gain insights into the complex processes that shape the textile industry. Through engaging workshops, discussions, and hands-on activities, participants will develop a deep understanding of the ecological footprint left behind by the fashion sector. We will also explore the life cycle of textiles, from the sourcing of raw materials to production, distribution, consumption, and disposal. By examining each stage, we will identify the key environmental challenges and uncover innovative solutions to create a sustainable future.
Together, we will analyze the impacts of cotton cultivation, textile manufacturing, and waste management, enabling participants to make informed choices and advocate for change in their communities.
Youth exchange is for everyone who is interested in the topic and would like to travel and meet new people and cultures. Between the age of 16 – 25, leader can be over 25.
