Schools

At TRAID we recognise that young people’s voices on environmental and social issues are getting louder. We want to inspire and empower students to make more sustainable choices and to share this with their peers, networks and communities. Using interactive and experiential activities, TRAID explores the life cycle of clothes and the impact this has on the planet and people, and what can be done to change this.

Primary Schools

TRAID offers interactive assemblies that engage students in the life cycle of clothes.

With a combination of images and props we tell the story from the cotton field to the high street to landfill. We discuss the positive impacts of buying second hand clothes while challenging negative perceptions about wearing them. We introduce students to the far-reaching environmental and social impacts of the fashion and textile industry and aim to inspire them to make more sustainable choices in the future.

Secondary Schools

TRAID offers a range of interactive classroom activities to engage students on various topics relating to the production, consumption and disposal of clothes.

By focussing on the origin of clothes, we encourage students to understand how their choices impact people and the planet, at home and globally. We aim to inspire and empower students to buy and wear more sustainable clothes and promote critical thinking that challenges stigmas around buying second hand clothes.

Stay tuned for the launch of our brand-new education programme towards the end of 2019 which will be packed with new activities and resources to inspire and generate change. Using solution driven activities, and experiential learning opportunities, we will explore and challenge our unsustainable relationship with clothes to create the next generation of change makers.
