FutureLearn: Who Made My Clothes?

Lift the lid on the global fashion industry

Do you ever think about where your clothes come from, who made them, how and at what cost?

Created with Fashion Revolution - a global movement for transparency catalysed by the fatal Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh - this course lifts the lid on the global fashion industry.

We will share with you a variety of simple techniques to find the answer yourself, and to use your findings to press the fashion industry to value people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. It will encourage us to question what we, as active global citizens, can do to enable change.

This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in fashion, trade, ethics and activism, including those involved in the Fashion Revolution movement. It is also suitable for teachers who want to enrich their school, further education, and higher education curricula.

We will draw together themes from Geography, Fashion and Textile, English Language, English as a Foreign Language, Historical Enquiry, Politics, Sociology, Art, Economics, Environmental Studies, Global Citizenship, Sustainable Development, Personal and Social Studies. It is possible to participate in the course using skills and knowledge acquired outside formal education. Key concepts will be explained in accessible and thought-provoking ways.

You will need access to an internet browser, and word processing software. You will also be encouraged, with our guidance, to use simple online tools to aid, collate, publish and share your findings.
