One in every five individualis estimated to be directly or indirectly employed by the industry and the consumption of clothing has risen by over 400% in the last two decades with the advent of fast fashion, outsourcing and globalization.
On October 27, DoBe WE" is organizing "Textiles – From Globalization to an Ecological Turnaround?" event and invites two professionals, Mr. Nitin Dani and Mr. Knut Wimberger, to discuss how textiles are produced, the challenges in the industry, the social and environmental impact, consumer awareness on the problems, eco labels and certifications, and lastly, how such a global issue connects with each one of us and how can we drive a positive ecological turnaround.
Attendees are requested to bring 3 pieces of clothing from their homes as the talk is not just a lecture but really aims to establish a connection between us and what we wear.
