Open Source Circular Economy Days In Hungary!
This event is organised by the ECO TEAM of our National Fashion League Hungary supporting the initiatives of the Open Source Circular Economy Days 2015. The Forum is hosted by the RETEXTIL Foundation in Pécs in Hungary.
We invite a wide range of people, textile and clothing experts, professionals of waste treatment, recycling and processing, eco designers and creative people using recycled textile and fabrics. The participants will receive more information about the production of the acitvity of Retextil Foundation on spot. We will discuss about the different aspects of recycling and sustainability in textile and our „Team Hungary” at the the Open Source Circular Days 2015 platform will inform the participants about the Open Source Circular Economy’s concepts and we would like to encourage them to work together globally. We would like to use the Open Source Circular Days 2015 platform to share the creative, rethinking and innovative ideas of this event, hoping to get some new ideas from other countries/cities too. Our aim is to start to build up a global collaboration in any of the said issues.
We have found the best place to our event OSCEDAYS at RETEXTIL in Hungary.
