    Symposium – Global, sustainable & fair? Opportunities of the bio-economy for the textile and clothing industry

    There is a growing call for more sustainable fashion and textiles produced under humane conditions. This year, the annual symposium of the HTW Berlin will take place on the topic "Global, sustainable and fair? Opportunities of the bio-economy for the textile and clothing industry". HTW scientists debate together with insiders of the textile and clothing industry. This will be followed by a breakout session with experts.

    They will discuss how far the process of rethinking has progressed and which changes are still necessary. They will talk about supply chains and wages, certificates and seals, initiatives and of course innovations that could bring progress, such as the bio-economy. What opportunities does the bio-economy have on the global clothing market? Will sustainability make the step from niche to mass production?

    The symposium will take place in the digital space. It is part of the Berlin Science Week for the third time.
