Hakan Karaosman is a social scientist who focuses on environmental and social justice in and across fashion supply chains. Karaosman implores listeners to recognise a fundamental premise: climate change and social inequality are phenomena which are already ‘too far gone’. Being so developed, their current conditions require an entirely new paradigm in order to make sure everybody can experience the justice they deserve.
