From the world-changing to the wondrous: explore what really goes on inside a university with our LATES events, exclusively for adults!

About this event

From field to fabric: cotton goes through a complex production process and is touched by many different hands in the supply chain before it can be transformed into the clothes you wear.

How green could your next t-shirt be? Join us as we discover a more sustainable future for cotton, shine a light on some cotton success stories, and consider the role that consumers can play to ensure a fairer future for all in the global supply chain.

This event is the final in a series of three Be Curious LATES events, which explore the complex, challenging and globally important history, production and consumption of cotton, with contributions from universities, the fashion industry, historians and sustainability experts.

Speakers: Sushma Iyengar (Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan founder), Simon Ferrigno (Freelance researcher and writer), Professor Surender Munjal (University of Leeds)
