Goal 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production

Explore the idea of ‘equilibrium’ and its importance in nature and society, and use this as inspiration to create an original hat or headpiece from sustainable materials.

What is this challenge?

This is a challenge that invites you to unleash your creativity. You will explore the concept of ‘equilibrium’ in various contexts, from biodiversity and climate change to equality and social justice. You will then use these ideas to inspire you in the design of a unique hat or headpiece that could be made of sustainable materials. To help guide you, there is video content from Scottish milliners (hat-makers) Aimee McBride and Hannah Young, as well as tutorials showing you various techniques for making hats and headpieces of different styles.
