また、我々はMITのIAP (冬季自主活動講習期間)を通し、学生達にニット製品の制作方法の体験講座を実施し、Knitting の面白さや、その様々な可能性を探求。学生達の自由な発想での創造活動を通して共に学ぶ機会を持ちました。今後も様々な形でのMITとのコラボを通し、これらのお互いの学びの機会を創造するだけでなく、こうした学びを皆さまにお伝えし、またユニークな学びの機会を展開していきたいと思います。

Title: ZERO-WASTE FASHION〜Protecting the Planet from Fashion Loss〜
Presenters: Toshiki Nishino (Shima Seiki), Satoko Imbe (Shima Seiki), Senna Nakaya (Shima Seiki USA)
Keywords: Environmental issues, Learning
Description: Lecture for 35 minutes + Q&A for 10 minutes

Have you heard of "food loss?" It happens when the amount of food produced is more than the amount we eat, and leftovers get thrown away. In the same way, the clothes we wear face "fashion loss," with 92 million tons being thrown away each year! Something has to be done about this. In this session, we present the problems we face in today's fashion industry, and solutions for transforming it into an eco-friendly and sustainable industry. 

In addition, through MIT's IAP (Independent Activity Program), we offered students a hands-on course on how to make knitwear, exploring the fun of knitting and its various possibilities. We had an opportunity to learn together through the students' creative activities based on their free ideas. In the future, we will continue to collaborate with MIT in various ways, not only to create opportunities for mutual learning, but also to share this learning with you and develop unique learning opportunities.
