Panel Discussion

Share your opinion in a conversation on fashion’s unsustainable practices, with Francesca Zoppi, Peter Musembi, Kamya Choudhary, Sokari Douglas Camp and chair Tracey Sage.

Join us for a very dynamic town hall discussion on environmental justice and the fashion and creative industry has to measure up. Discuss the industry’s impacts on the Global South, weigh in on the steps to action change, and examine what the responsibility is for all those along the fashion chain, from policy makers to consumers.


  • Tracey Sage, board member of OutdoorArtsUK, and a creative director, cultural producer and strategist


  • Kamya Choudhary, India Policy Fellow
  • Sokari Douglas Camp, British-Nigerian artist
  • Peter Musembi, broadcast journalist with the BBC World Service
  • Francesca Zoppi, Sustainable development specialist

This is an event by Southbank Centre, co-curated by one of Royal African Society’s partners Creative Resilience International a nonprofit cultural production and development organisation whose mission is to support talented yet underrepresented individuals and organisations within design, art and fashion.

The team comprises industry experts who collectively have over 20 years of experience in cultural strategizing, creative production and advancing education and capacity building across international markets. We champion and empower underrepresented, underappreciated and very talented creatives.
