What is GFA Academy?

Through educational platforms and community knowledge sharing, Global Fashion Agenda (GFA) Academy supports the learning and implementation of sustainability knowledge, tools, and solutions for industry stakeholders. Due to the increasing complexity in the sustainability vocabulary and an ever-changing landscape of accessible innovations and new technology, GFA Academy aims to become the global sustainability education convener to push the industry forward with the application of best practices. We will accomplish this by creating and facilitating educational material in collaboration with relevant partners and by demonstrating the practical application of impactful industry knowledge through actionable initiatives.

MASTERCLASSES

GFA Academy facilitates learning opportunities for the industry and consumers interested in advancing their sustainability knowledge. Exploring a wide range of topics, from technical supply chain nuances to redesigning fashion products, GFA Academy focuses on the education of systems and services with earth and humanity in mind.

INNOVATION FORUM

The Innovation Forum presents a curated community of the world’s leading sustainable solutions and connects them to fashion brands and retailers to drive meaningful transformation. GFA Academy work to bring on board Innovation Forum members to cover the entire value chain – from innovative materials to end-of-use solutions. Through various activities and networking opportunities facilitated by GFA Academy throughout the year, Innovation Forum members are being connected with the broader fashion industry to nurture new ideas and stimulate the market.

GFA DESIGNER CHALLENGE

GFA Academy invites brands and their Creative Directors to challenge the status quo and work in collaboration with a sustainable solution provider as part of the GFA Designer Challenge. They follow the Creative Directors and their sustainable design process from original idea to final product; matching style and ingenuity with supercharged tech solutions and inspires industry stakeholders to follow along on the journey that benefits both people and planet.
