This course is relevant for brands, vendors, sourcing offices, factories and curious consumers. It is well-suited for students, fashion designers, product developers, manufacturers and managers.
It is geared for any learner who is inspired to place water first and motivated to implement new ways of designing, producing and consuming fashion.
A basic understanding of the water cycle and water footprint as well as of the production process, including the supply chain for textiles is expected. We therefore recommend that learners first complete the “Water in the Textile Industry: The Fundamentals” course.

How will you learn?

The online course is self-paced and includes a pre-assessment test and modules of interactive instruction combining a variety of formats such as videos, practical exercises, case studies and discussion forums. It concludes on a final assessment. An in-course glossary facilitates the understanding of technical terms.

All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a Drip by Drip Certificate of Completion.

What will you learn?

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Integrate water consumption and pollution issues into product, operations, process designs and retail

2. Comprehend how each step of the garment making process impacts water and apply the solution approaches to the most water-intensive areas: fibre, production and after-sales
