Why ++ The Twenties Call for Transformation

The 2020’s are destined to become the decade of glocal changemaking — this was clear long before the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted most of our global human activities. Now the need to transform outdated systems could meet a historic opportunity to combine recovery from the disturbing pandemic with all the benefits of sustainable development.

Also, Berlin Fashion Week is transforming itself with a refocus on its roots as the European capital of creative industries and continues to focus on a sustainable future with a more than ever cross-disciplinary approach to celebrate fashion and the people involved.

202030 — THE BERLIN FASHION SUMMIT is dedicated to reinventing fashion as a system that enables and produces sustainable economies, structures and products and leverages a positive societal impact — for a global fashion culture that inspires sustainable lifestyle.

How ++

International and local experts and innovators from fashion, science, business, education, politics, art & tech will be invited for 202030 — THE BERLIN FASHION SUMMIT’s kick-off event in January 2021. The 202030 dialogue is divided into three parts:

The Pop Up Think Tank is not public and serves as the first experimental and preparational part. It consists of three top-notch workshops, discussing systemically relevant questions from different points of view – by envisioning the future of #1 fashion culture, #2 fashion economy and the #3 fashion product itself.

The PRE SUMMIT is public and includes a policy lab, where policy makers from the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands and representatives of the Green Button will present their best practises of creating an open dialogue with stakeholders of the civil society and industry.

The SUMMIT serves as the main public part and opens up the dialogue to a broader audience. Each summit day will highlight one of the preceding topics #1 fashion culture, #2 fashion economy and #3 fashion product. Individual workshop participants will present the outcomes of the Pop Up Think Tank. Furthermore, inspirational keynotes will be held, followed by demonstrations and presentations of best practises. A closing panel will wrap up the insights of each day and provoke progressive solutions and guidelines for future operations of the fashion industry.
