Sustainability Awareness Week 2021: FIT Biodesign Roundtable with FIT’s Sustainability Ambassador, Amber Valletta
Biodesign Challenge is an educational program and competition that is shaping the first generation of biodesigners. FIT has partnered with the Biodesign Challenge to envision, create, and critique transformational applications in biotech. FIT students have won the Biodesign Challenge and have started their own businesses using their sustainable designs to solve environmental industry challenges.
FIT’s Sustainability Ambassador, Amber Valletta, will sit down with previous FIT Biodesign winners to discuss the significance of biotechnology in fashion design, how brands can incorporate these sustainable materials into their products and the overall impact it will make on the future of fashion and the environment.
Sustainability is a key component of FIT’s mission and is embedded in the college’s curriculum and operations. During virtual Sustainability Awareness Week, we invite our community to learn about recent innovations from leaders in the industry, FIT students, faculty, staff, and alumni; experience FIT’s efforts to make a positive impact on the earth; and discover new ways to live with a smaller footprint.
