To commemorate 2018 Earth’s Day, London and Northwest constituencies are delighted to present a seminar series on global challenges. Seminars will include the collaboration of experts in different topics related with the Sustainable Developments Goals, panels and round tables.
Join Stitched Up for an informative and inspiring afternoon, and get involved in creating a Manchester Fashion Revolution!
Fashion Revolution Day, 24th April 2018 marks five whole years since the tragic Rana Plaza garment factory collapse. In this incident over 1,135 people lost their lives while they were sewing clothes for the British high street. Thousands more people were injured or had their lives severely impacted by the disaster. Many are still suffering these impacts now.
Normally, held on the last Friday of the month, Bike Friday is a set of led commuter rides into Manchester from various starting places around Greater Manchester. Most rides leave at 8am but check the website as they vary depending on the distance from Manchester. Rides finish at Ezra and Gil, Stevenson Square, in Manchester City Centre.
The Kindling Trust will be screening ‘In Our Hands’ a lovely film made by the Land Workers Alliance that looks at the problems with the UK industrial food system and explores the quiet revolution among small hold farmers to combat this and transform how our food is produced and distributed. Throughout the tumultuous summer of the Brexit referendum the Land workers’ Alliance joined forces with two film-makers, to unearth the farms and faces that are making this change happen.
