Engaging citizens on textile waste, disposal and recycling
The first round of the Resyntex Citizen Labs will take place in Manchester on the 5th and 6th October 2017. Resyntex is an EU project, looking at new ways of turning textile waste into a valuable resource, and keeping it out of landfill.
As part of the research, facilitators from MMU and Prospex Institute will be inviting participants to come and have a chat over lunch or dinner, and to share their views on fashion, clothing and recycling, which disposal and recycling options are currently available, and which ones are felt to be most attractive.
The event will be an informal focus group with fun activities and food, drink and refreshments provided. Those attending will also have a chance to find out more about Resyntex and how to stay in touch.
