BIAAF (Bilbao International Art & Fashion)
Description/achievement of initiative

BIAAF (Bilbao International Art & Fashion) leads the SDGs in emerging fashion design. We defend Human Rights through promoting decent work and high-quality education. Every year, BIAAF offers a broad range of grants in order to promote equal opportunities. With our work, we aims to achieve the empowerment of women in design and defend the creative industries as a key tool for change.

Implementation methodologies

After ten years of experience, BIAAF has aligned all its strategies and actions with the SDGs. We have identified the objectives and their respective goals and have made an in-depth analysis of what Human Rights we are working on. Likewise, we have carried out a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats). For this task we have used tools such as the SDG Compass, the GRI 4 guide and we have also conducted interviews with the different stakeholders. Another fundamental tool has been the Guide of the Danish Institute of Human Rights to identify which rights we are working on.
