Fashion revolution – the future of textiles

Please note that the latest day for application for this toolkit is 31 October 2021. The material is under revision during 2022.

Fashion revolution – quarantine edition
-Editorials for social media

Clothes affect all of us on this planet. Fashion and textile represent one of the most polluting industries. In order to meet the need for digital communications content, we now present six short films for social media (see Building blocks below). The “activate your closet” films highlight different ways to prolong the life of garments and contribute to the behavioural change needed to meet the great climate challenge we face.

The films can be used as inspiration on social media to attract attention to the Fashion Revolution toolkit, as a social media campaign on its own, or combined with (online-) workshops, for example styling, re-dyeing, remake or mending.

Please make sure that you only use the campaign texts provided by the Swedish Institute. The texts for the campaign are in English but can be translated to your local language.

This toolkit is linked to the Swedish Government’s innovation partnership programmes.
