HOW THE FASHION REVOLUTION GLOBAL NETWORK WORKS

Fashion Revolution’s global network has a decentralised structure, this means that country groups and offices are largely self-governing around a set of guidelines and principles with support from Fashion Revolution CIC in the UK. They are affiliated with Fashion Revolution CIC who act as global coordinators through Voluntary Group Agreements and Country Office Affiliation Agreements.

The network is a largely voluntary and it is made up of:

  1. Country Teams which are voluntary groups organised around a group constitution
  2.  Country Offices which are legal entities in their own countries who often also have volunteers or voluntary members as well as employees

If you would like to get involved you can see if your country already has a team by clicking on the Find Your Country section on this page. If they do then you can send a message to the current team using the contact form on their country page expressing interest in joining the team or volunteering on particular events or activities. Please be aware that as teams are voluntary they may take a little while to respond to your enquiry. Due to voluntary capacity some teams are only active during Fashion Revolution Week each April, while others activate around the year.

If you are a student and would like to get in touch about becoming a Student Ambassador in your country please contact the current team using the contact form on their country page to find out if they have an active Student Ambassador programme. Student Ambassadors are voluntary roles coordinated by the Country Team or Country Office who activate around Fashion Revolution in their universities.

If your country is not listed this means there is not an active country team based there. To express interest in founding a voluntary group in your country please refer to the guidance pack and then contact the Global Network Manager on niamh@fashionrevolution.org . This gives information on the Voluntary Group structure including a template for creating a Voluntary Group Constitution.
