Textile Game of Sustainability
The textile industry has been impacted by many challenges including, globalisation, digitalization and socio-cultural changes like hardly any other industry in recent decades. In addition to an intensified competitive landscape as well as a highly globalised economy, there is evidently a lack of qualified and skilled workers.
In order to counteract, an interactive business game for vocational training will be designed in collaboration with the “Slovene Textile Association”. The training modules will emphasis on sustainability measures of the textile industry, such as sustainable production, environmental and climate protection, the supply chain duty of care law, recycling, circular economy.
The developed simulation game aims to transport knowledge and encourage action within the framework of workshops and online modules. The outcome will be a modern, appealing and interactive educational tool. Adapted to digital conditions and the target group, the attractiveness of the vocational training and work situation in the textile industry should improve. The project will fill in currently missing professional qualifications and be based on international standards.
The design, development, and realisation of the business game will be developed in a follow-up project, as the initial milestone is the development of the concept.
