<p class=”MsoNormal”>I choose Goal number 12 Responsible Consumption and Production. As a senior girls’ school, I think that it would be very beneficial to look at the role that the fast fashion industry plays in challenging effective sustainability. It would be very interesting, informative and beneficial to challenge our pupils to explore the social, economic and environmental impact that the fashion industry has on a global level. It would be thought provoking for the children to explore how small changes can change this narrative and to identify the role that they can play in this process. Our pupils would be very keen supporters of certain large online retailers who mass produce high demand items with low end focus on ethical sourcing, employee support, working conditions and sustainability. It would be interesting to explore this topic with our pupils and identify alternative approaches and choices that could be made with a stronger global citizenship consciousness.</p>
