Glossary of sustainability for Fashion & Food


The Glossary of Sustainability is a digital, open and participatory resource. Through key words, it describes the dimensions of sustainability in the fashion and food industries and brings together case studies, research practices, and exemplary European-level information sources that are freely accessible and useful for education and research. 

The Glossary of Sustainability is designed with the aim of strengthening and developing the understanding of sustainability as a concept, by interpreting terms and issues of growing importance for the fashion and food sectors. Accordingly, it aims to inform and advance action and debate on the most pressing challenges affecting the environment, available resources, respect for workers' rights etc. 

The Glossary of Sustainability was created by an international network of sustainability scholars and researchers who shared meanings, sources, and examples, as part of the Erasmus+ project "Fashion&Food synergy for sustainability" , and will be continuously updated collaboratively.
