Congratulations to Indira Kelly, a student of Seamount College, Kinvara, who won the Sr Sarah Clarke award for her project analysing the fast fashion industry, using the tenets of Catholic social teaching.
The award was devised by Mia Joyce-Walsh to honour Galway-born social justice advocate Sr Sarah Clarke, and to help post-primary students to engage with Catholic Social Teaching. Indira’s project researched the ethical issues relating to fast fashion, and raises awareness of the need for fairness and human dignity in all aspects of clothing manufacture, sale, and purchase.
