MOOC on Sustainable Fashion
Based on their long-standing research on sustainable fashion, MSC researchers Professor Esben Rahbek Gjerdrum Pedersen and Postdoc Kirsti Reitan Andersen have launched a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) together with Sustainable Fashion Consultant Ana Lucia Diaz Schiavon.
The title of the course is Sustainable Fashion and it focuses on sustainable business models for the fashion industry.
Targeting students and practitioners alike, the course centers on a practical introduction to sustainable business model theory and a wide variety of inspirational examples from the industry. The course contains expert interviews, animations and case examples from Denmark as well as abroad.
The Sustainable Fashion Course, which has been developed by CBS and SokFok Studio, is offered by Coursera, an internationally recognized platform for online courses. All videos are also available on Honest Fashion.
