Event description
We're back with our latest talk on the #FutureOf Sustainable Fashion. Come hear from the experts on the industry's progress and priorities.

About this Event

Some would say the consumption practices encouraged by global, fast-fashion brands have created a throw-away society, involving high-energy use, labour exploitation and increased carbon emissions - all for the latest trend.

Though many consumers are starting to take notice, is their call for change being heard? Does a circular value chain really solve the core problems of the industry? Will companies be able to develop new ways of manufacturing fast enough? And, how has digitalisation opened up for new opportunities in fashion?

Since many companies are failing to reach out to customers effectively about their efforts to become more sustainable, we have assembled a panel of experts and leaders in the industry to share their views on the future of sustainable fashion. Come hear from each of our guest speakers, then stay for a discussion and Q&A.

Join us August 28 as we speak to:

- Ina Vikøren, Sustainability Manager, H&M

- Anja Bakken Riise, Leader, Framtiden i våre hender (Future in Our Hands)

- Gisle Mariani Mardal, Head of Innovation, Norwegian Fashion Hub

- Ingun Grimstad Klepp, Researcher, Forbruksforskningsinstituttet SIFO and OsloMet

More speakers to be announced soon!

It’s the latest #FutureOf talk series presented by Business for Peace and MESH. We're also pleased to be part of the programming for Oslo's premier fashion event, OsloRunway. The event is free to attend (you’ll just have to pay for anything you purchase from the bar), but please RSVP to let us know you’ll be joining us.
