Behind the Seams is a free resource to support educators to promote education for sustainability. This education toolkit uses participatory teaching methods to explore the socio-environmental impacts of how we produce, consume and waste clothes to equip young people with the knowledge and actions needed to shape a more sustainable society. The toolkit is aimed at KS3 and KS4 but has been designed to be used as widely as possible. It contains six lesson plans across three themes – production, consumption and waste – and includes worksheets, slideshow presentations and factsheets to support educators to deliver lessons. This latest version (2023) includes new activities exploring the impacts of the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse, and its unfinished legacy.
