Current Call for Submission

Call For Action
FORWARD The GREEN Edition

We want to raise an urgent and vital issue —to mitigate the environmental and social cost and save the planet– by calling out for submission to be a part of FORWARD’s special collectors’ issue, The GREEN Edition.

The GREEN Edition seeks to raise awareness around sustainability by anthologizing relevant, powerful and impactful content that inspires change.

Our sustainable edit matters. Our planet depends on what society does to alleviate climate change.
The stark findings of the most up-to-date 2021 climate change report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are deafening alarm bells sounding the urgency for the need to shift to a low-carbon footing. The evidence that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land is irrefutable.
Climate change weaves through our daily lives– from politics and economy to sea levels and weather to the clothes we wear and the food we eat. Human-induced climate change is widespread and only intensifying.
The fashion industry comes at a tremendous environmental and social cost–pollution, water use, carbon emissions, human rights, and gender inequality. The fashion economy must urgently step up its efforts, act decisively, and respond to this global climate change crisis with solidarity. NOW.
