Project funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme.
Fashion Earth Alliance - Vocational Excellence and Enterprise united for training, policy reform and sustainability in the fashion, textiles and apparel industries
The project FEA-VEE addresses two main challenges of the fashion and textile industries. On one side, the sector faces difficulties in recruiting and retaining skilled workforce with highly technical and digitalization skills. On the other hand, the sector needs to become greener and more sustainable. Fashion is considered one of the most polluting industries in the world with challenges such as energy consumption, water consumption, chemicals, solid waste and carbon emissions (the apparel industry accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions).
The project FEA-VEE combines a mixture of partners that allow for interactions and exchanges between VET providers of different levels and industry representatives. The flow of cooperation between these diverse actors is established by two main pillars: a) a common understanding and agreement on future shared strategies and activities; and b) facilitated actions via an online networking platform for initiating and maintaining collaborations and learners’ mobility.
