Campus Forum on Ethically Responsible Production and Consumption
Odegaard Library, Room 220, University of Washington, Seattle
This forum brings together scholars, activists, and representatives from all parts of the apparel industry to discuss supply chains, monitoring corporate behavior and the role of the university. In the last twenty years, the apparel industry has been the focus of a highly-visible debate about business and consumer ethics in the 21st century. This debate and the attention focused on the industry have produced many different responses from companies, non-governmental organizations and the universities that purchase and brand apparel. This is an opportunity to reflect on the progress made and the challenges that still lie ahead.
