TNFI x Eileen Fisher’s Academic Consortium is a ground-breaking, multidisciplinary workshop and thinkspace that brings together a diverse group of business, labor, design, and environmental experts to collaborate on real solutions to the ethical and sustainability challenges of the fashion industry. In 2020, the event was also supported in part by Avery Dennsion.
We also work directly with universities to design academic programming, including guest lectures, course consultation, etc. We can help your department meet the needs of today’s students with our holistic sustainable fashion curriculum, which can serve as a stand-alone program, course, or can be adapted to complement existing curricula at your institution of higher education.
As a follow up to participation in the Academic Consortium, TNFI helped Brown University create a research studies course with its Environmental Science department based on the impacts of the fashion industry.
