Seminar and workshop that challenges the textile and fashion industry
Textile Challenge 4, with the theme “Production”, is the fourth in the series that aims to provide the industry with insights and tools to create a sustainable future for the textile and fashion industry. The previous three occasions have dealt with product development, transparency and materials and chemistry.
Textile Challenge 4 will focus on production, where most of the environmental impact in the textile industry lies. We will discuss topics such as water, energy and transport linked to production with a speaker mix of researchers and entrepreneurs. The target group is mainly entrepreneurs from the textile industry, but also researchers and other players related to textiles are represented among the participants.
Textile Challenge 4 is organized within Textile & Fashion 2030, the national platform for sustainable fashion and sustainable textiles.
