On 26 October 2021, Textile & Fashion 2030 will live broadcast the International Summit 2021 Big DO Design Hackathon to inspire companies and increase insight among decision-makers and other stakeholders about the challenges and opportunities related to sustainability within the textile and fashion industry. 

This inspiring afternoon will focus on the results from the Big DO design hackathon, which will take place in Sweden, South Africa and USA during 2021. With the Sustainable Development Goals as a baseline, the participants will have created design concepts that transcend ideas of what is sustainable in the apparel and textile industry. On 26 October, the participants will present the results within the International Summit 2021! 

The event will be held online, in English, and it will bring together invited speakers and participants from the Big DO design hackathon 2021, that will discuss the challenges and enablers to transform the textile & fashion industry to a beautiful, clean, just, and thriving circular economy! The invited guests will give a different perspective on the matter, mixed with reflections from the Big DO participants.

Among the guests:

  • Ulrika Modéer, Assistant Secretary General & Director of Bureau of External Relations & Advocacy @UNDP
