Fashion Sustainability Debate in the Danish Parliament

Two things were highlighted at yesterday’s official opening of Copenhagen Fashion Week: First, the Danish fashion industry is now experiencing growth for the first time since 2008, and second, the fact that the fashion industry seems to be heading down a green path.

Not surprisingly, politicians welcome the sustainable focus in the fashion industry. That’s why, tomorrow Danish Fashion Institute and the slow fashion magazine Less Magazine has arranged a public debate in the Danish Parliament, Christiansborg.

On the agenda is social and environmental responsibility of consumers, politicians and the fashion industry itself. A panel has been selected to discuss the topic. It consists of members of parliament Benny Engelbrecht (S) and Lone Loklindt (RV), designer Mads Nørgaard, CEO of the Danish brand Barbara Í Gongini, Ole Í Gongini, and Sarah Dieckmann from the CSR media and research centre, DanWatch.

Entrance is free and registration through Facebook.

August 7 from 14:30 to 16:00, Christiansborg, Prins Jørgens Gård 1, Copenhagen.
