Hi all,

The horrific factory collapse in Dhaka last month has brought the business
practices of global garment brands, as well their thousands of their
suppliers, into the spotlight. As garment factory supplier lists across
global brands are increasingly becoming available, we wanted to take a
closer look at these in our upcoming:

*Data Expedition: Mapping the garment factories*

When: Saturday May 25 – 12:00 BST to May 26 18:00 BST - link to your

We’ll be looking for projects such as:
- Mapping garment factories locally and globally
- Exploring the global supply chain of garment export and imports
- Mapping the ownership of local factories and global brands with open
company data
- Finding stories and patterns in the connections between global brands and
local garment factories

Registration is now
