With the end of Fair Fashion Month, our ethical fashion campaign with Fairphone came the judging for A Sustainable World 2016 - our annual Art competition which attracts applicants from across the world.

On this day in 2014, my husband Tim and I exited the LAX immigration offices for the first time as US residents. It was a momentous move that involved selling our home in the beautiful British countryside, leaving all family and friends, uprooting our businesses, shipping our entire house contents and flying two whippets over the Atlantic.

Why Wage Growth Will Likely Be Lower for Longer

It is likely that wage growth will continue to be low while productivity will continue to disappoint when compared to neighbours near and afar. At the same time, the very things that underpin those less than rosy figures are the factors driving the UK's strong economic performance in a rather lacklustre global economy.

The self-proclaimed City of Cowboys and Culture, Texan city Fort Worth is as worthy of a visit as its name suggests.

Why I (Somewhat Reluctantly) Like Vladimir Putin

Oliver Norgrove | Posted 05.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Oliver Norgrove

Tyrannical and thoroughly disagreeable though he is, Mr Putin stands for nationalistic pride, a crucial buffer against the perils of American foreign policy and a determination to defend a revived Russia on the world stage, and her citizens abroad. Three things I respect, and three things a shrinking world desperately needs.

Why Fashion Needs a Seat at the Table of Mainstream Education.

Francesco Loy Bell | Posted 03.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Francesco Loy Bell

This would inform people, spark an interest from a young age, and give a scope for creativity that is not currently present, without forcing people to solely study fashion. I am not putting other arts down, I am trying to bring fashion up to a similar position, and it is my belief that, with these changes in attitude and procedure, this is a very real possibility.

The US Road Trip is for many people - including many Americans - the dream holiday. It's the freedom of the road, the ability to stop or move on, a chance to see the country's breath-taking scenery and cross its wide-open spaces.

For those who've never been involved in the struggles that led us to where we are today, it's never too late. It might not always be obvious, but to repeat what Stonewall keeps saying - because ultimately they are right - there's still work to do.

Let's Not Ban Trump From Britain, Or Anyone Else For That Matter...

Joe Ellis-Gage | Posted 19.01.2016 | UK Politics
Joe Ellis-Gage

So perhaps we should stop doing ISIS' propaganda for them. Maybe we should stop making Britain a target by thinking that banning individual people will change the views of many. We should welcome these people in and challenge them in a good old fashioned debate. Maybe that would be the right thing to do. Well either that, or just ban Trump...

A Ban on Trump Would Help Nobody - and Hinder Discussions We Need to Have

David Browne | Posted 18.01.2016 | UK Universities & Education

If we really wanted to challenge Trump's views, we would be inviting him here, and turning up to question him and show him that we don't support him - and maybe manage to change his mind just a little in the process.

As I thought back to the last few days I'd had in Spain, I realised one thing: I didn't want to go back to the UK. I could feel the heat rising up my body and my palms were becoming clammy. What was it that was making my pulse race so much? The thought of returning to work? The weather? The lack of adventure ahead?

America is Saved

Mark Robins | Posted 08.01.2016 | UK Politics

I admit - I love America. I love the country, the people, the diversity, the food, the craziness. I know it has its faults but in general I love it. Except for one major thing. Guns. The country is a mess over this. If it wasn't so tragic it would be laughable. The whole thing has become a farce and I want to add my bit of nonsense to the subject.

Within the next week Members of Parliament will be voting on whether to launch air strikes against ISIS in Syria. With many Labour and Conservative MPs in support of extending air strikes into Syria, it is likely that the first bombing raids will take place towards the end of next week. But it has not been determined what the government wishes to achieve by bombing Syria.
