H&M Change Makers Lab

H&M Change Makers Lab

To think ahead in a transparent and open-minded way to address current topics of how to achieve sustainability in fashion, circ organised the Change Makers Lab 2019 in co-operation with H&M.

The questions related to making the textile industry more sustainable were transformed into live experiences that stimulated an intensive debate among visitors. About 300 participants, thought leaders, customers, industry experts, influencers and employees met with experts to discuss matters related to modern production chains, fair working conditions and increasing automation.

A virtual factory tour gave an insight into the process of textile production and its supply chains. Lectures given by experts, panel discussions, workshops and deep-dive sessions provided information on different sustainability topics. A hackathon was organised in order to enable both experts and guests to work on new approaches towards a circular economy for textiles, while innovative solutions for achieving future transport without fossil fuels were discussed next door.
