Across four online sessions we will have input from expert speakers and thought leaders to help shape your knowledge and understanding of policy and legislation, consumer and retail thinking, partnership development, and implementation.

In our final session we look at consumer behaviour, retail trends and reactions and look more specifically at textiles.
