Watch a recording of this empowering online discussion on food, fashion and the future. Topics include pay-what-you-can cafés, racial bias in AI technology, and what ‘sustainable’ fashion really means. Three speakers present new ideas for you to explore that might make you think differently about how we can live better with our planet and each other.

This event was created by our RawMinds Youth Ambassadors, who are aged 14 to 19, and is aimed at other young people.

This event was originally livestreamed on Thursday 10 September.
