The Copenhagen Fashion Summit will be held on May 11, 2017. This is the fifth edition of the event. Over the years it has manifested as the leading forum for sustainability in fashion and has proven to be a safe neutral environment to launch new initiatives, where businesses, academia, non-profit organisations, policy-makers and media can come together to join forces and make actual commitments to change.
Leaders from the fashion sector, NGOs, policy and academia will gather to discuss how the fashion industry can contribute to a world beyond the next season. The summit will present a curated program of keynotes and discussions and sessions with leading voices who will share their experiences and commitments to inspire future action.
The three trillion-dollar fashion industry is also one of the most resource and labor intensive industries in the world, emphasising the need for a unified effort to increase the sustainability of the industry across categories, borders and size of businesses.
This year launches the Global Fashion Agenda, whose mission is to mobilise the global fashion industry and transform the way fashion is produced and consumed. This will be done by engaging the broader fashion community on the most pressing issues.
