15 August 2023

Listen to the latest episode of Manchester Met’s podcast

In this month’s episode, we take a look at fast fashion and clothing waste, as we hear from researchers at Manchester Met on new ideas for the fashion industry to make their products more sustainable. 

We speak to our researchers at the Para Swimming World Championships, partnered by the Manchester Metropolitan University Institute of Sport, who are playing a vital role in the performance of the Great Britain Para swimming team and shaping the sport’s classification system. 

Finally, we sat down with fine art graduate Stan Harland from our Manchester School of Art who proved - at the age of 80 - that it’s never too late to achieve your dreams.
