The Circular Economy Student Hub (CESH), is an organisation made possible by a team of students, all passionate about creating a more sustainable world and we are working to facilitate a transition to a biobased and circular economy. Under the lead of BSc student Dieuwertje de Wagenaar (board member and manager circular fashion), Circular Fashion 2017 was founded and developed several activities shaped at improving awareness about the fashion industry at Wageningen University & Research. Here you’ll find an overview of their activities.
Circular Fashion Symposium
The Circular Fashion Symposium was aimed at connecting students, professors and companies to address the challenges of the fashion industry and create innovative solutions for a circular fashion future. By connecting the expertise from different departments in a panel discussion the goal was to build bridges towards interdisciplinary solutions in circular fashion. The Circular Fashion Symposium marked the first step towards an innovative fashion future at Wageningen University & Research.
In collaboration with Impulse, Project organization 100 years WUR Art&Exhibition, ArtEZ & State of Fashion.
Movie Night & Clothing Swap
Learning about the consequences of our consumerist society and taking a step into the right direction at the clothing swap, that was the goal. The movie night illustrated the effects of the current fashion industry, and thrives to change the consciousness of buying and wearing clothes. A sustainable fashion future starts in our own wardrobe and together we can put a circular economy in motion!
