“New economies to deal with climate change” Panel 

Thanks to the rise of new technologies and the increase of environmental awareness, new business models are emerging: shared economy, circular, “rentals”. We present five cases.

“Social Innovation” Panel 

Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world and with less transparency in its production chain.  But this doesn’t have to be the case. We present the most relevant examples of Latin America and the world, of fashion as a facilitator of social, cultural and ecological resilience.

“Design for Sustainability” Panel 

80% of the environmental impact of a garment (piece) is determined at the moment of its design. Learning to design for a sustainable world is the challenge.

“Creating a culture of sustainability” Panel

For at least 70 years (TV invention) success is a synonym of having a bigger house, a faster car, a dressing room full of clothes. Today we know that this has nothing to do with happiness. We present the pioneers in reversing this model towards a wellness-oriented lifestyle and sustainability.

The Future of textiles is green and this is demonstrated by the innovators included in this panel who were encouraged to take the initiative and bet on the respect for the environment and the human kind.
