Workshop at 202030- The Berlin Fashion Summit

It was wonderful to be a part of the 202030 workshops.  — The Berlin Fashion Summit is a cross-disciplinary platform, where avant-garde creatives meet industry stakeholders for constructive critical debates on the future of fashion. The goal is to bridge the gap between existing sustainability innovations and solutions with the industry’s need for pragmatic transformation guidelines and to envision tangible new alliances for new value chains for a sustainability-trendsetting future of fashion.

The 2020s are expected to become the decade of glocal change-making — now the need to transform outdated systems could meet a historic opportunity to combine recovery from the disturbing pandemic with all the benefits of sustainable development.

The second edition of the 202030 – Berlin Fashion Summit took place at the end of August and the beginning of September 2021 with the aim to encourage actions that are genuinely able to create a positive impact on society and the fashion industry. The online format of the event allowed people from all over the world to participate and watch the talks and workshops conducted by a selective list of industry experts, debating:

ECOSYSTEMS – How to implement positive impact?

The edition highlighted ecosystems as a livelihood, base and inspiration to foster life quality and holistic, agile and anti-fragile future warded solutions for fashion. The focus was on relationships and interactions for successful transformation with a positive impact.

The summit, unfortunately, came to an end – and we summarized and made available materials and resources to make sure you won’t be left behind any conversation!


Pop Up Think Tank – Workshops

The Pop Up Think Tanks took place as the first part of the 202030 Summit.  It was not available for the general public and served as an open space for constructively critical debates between experts to prepare quality content and clear messages for the public summit. 

It was divided into three different days, comprising distinct topics, as we can see in the recaps below:
