Our world has lots to worry about right now. We have a pandemic, followed by an economic recession, and then the looming climate crisis of global warming. Can our innovations save us? Can we create solutions for these huge challenges? In the textile, apparel, and fashion industries there are examples of big ideas that can transform our future. We will look at how some of these ideas can help us be sustainable, smart, and healthy. These represent not only big solutions but big opportunities.
