IMPACTISATION AND FASHION
Our main activities in last years were making products, services, industries and policies more in public benefit. Impact process called “Impactisation” is our methodological production method resulting in balanced social, environmental and economic impacts on the society. At the same time impactisation results in new, innovative and more competitive products and services.
Our first attempt was in tourism industry where we started in 2014 with development of the Impact Tourism. We defined 10+1 impact fields where we manage impacts. In 2020 – based on support of the Slovenian Tourist Association, European Economic and Social Committee opinion and European Union funds – we developed www.impact-tourism.net and are managing network called WITH – World Impact Tourism Habitat.
In the fashion industry various forms of sustainable and responsible fashion focus on minimizing the harm of the industry. Our aim is not only to limit harm but rather to maximize positive footprint (impact) of fashion on society. We do that by linking development, production and use of products and services with society challenges.
In other words – impact fashion products have a physical element and a impact element – maximized positive impact on the society.
Fashion impactisation (as an action) is an innovative methodological production method where milestones are creation/modification of a fashion policies, strategies, processes, business models or creation/modification of individual fashion products.
