Text: Fashion Panel + pop up showroom

Learn more about sustainable fashion and find local sustainable brands to support.

The Nordic countries are big fast fashion producers and consumers, but in recent years there has been a strong pull toward more sustainable lifestyles. How do we put the Nordic countries at the forefront of the fight for circular fashion, and how do we create a sustainable wardrobe for ourselves?

Join us in this panel discussion on the topic: Sustainable Fashion in the Nordic countries: Fast fashion industry’s negative effects and how to combat them, with sustainability influencer and speaker Outi Pyy, Mari Nordén from the ‘sewing revolution’ team Fæbrik and Jeppe Meier, co-founder of slow fashion brand Forét, the panel is moderated by Fashion Revolution Sweden’s Fiona Sjöberg. The panel discussion will also be available to watch through livestream via this link: https://www.wedonthavetime.org/event/cop26 or through this direct link

After the Sustainable Fashion Panel we have arranged a Pop Up Showroom with small, sustainable fashion businesses from Finland. Enjoy music, vegan snacks and locally produced drinks, all while discovering stylish and innovative clothing brands.

The event is part of the Nordic hub hosted by the Nordic Council of Ministers as a part of the UN climate change conference COP26.
