Interested in the topics of fast fashion and sustainable development? The Fast Art – Slow Fashion project puts fast fashion into the context of the triad of sustainable development (environment, society, economy). The project aims to cultivate awareness of youngsters about the contribution of fashion to climate change and social justice by using creativity and building on learning by doing, learning by design, learning by feeling and action-based learning.
We put emphasis on providing interactive and creative elements so that young adults would be attracted to the topic and sensitized in a playful and positive way. Creativity and art are used to face a social challenge. Under the framework of the current project, we create creative digital contents including video series (showing different decision-making situations), animated videos, podcasts, infographics in relation with fast fashion with the engagement of the youth and with the participants of the project partners.

Moreover, the project partners organize a four-round long, online creative competition for the youth about fast fashion. National rounds are organized in each participating country and the best participating youth groups qualify for the international final. Solving the tasks of the competition needs creativity from the participating groups.
The Fast Art – Slow Fashion project is implemented in the cooperation of 4 partners from 3 countries of the EU and led by the Hungarian EKO. The partners have experience in making digital materials, approaching a topic in a creative way, and they represent each pillars of sustainable development according to which fast fashion is approached: MASZK (HUN) represents the social pillar and is responsible for the creativity and artistic approach in the project, EKO (HUN) represents the social and economic pillar, while IDEC (GRE) and Aiforia (GER) are responsible for environment. These synergies contribute to exploiting our resources.
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
