Event registration

Now open for registration: our two EU Green Week Partner Events.

Free of cost and for all, however places are limited. Register now!

Friday 04 June 2021, 11 am – 2 pm CEST (11:00-14:00): Towards Zero Pollution – Second-Hand Counts.

Pollution kills, and the ones hardest hit are the poor. Production of clothes so far requires enormous amounts of chemicals (fertiliser, pesticides, insecticides, bleach, colorants etc). Once produced, clothes should therefore be worn for as long as possible. Second-hand counts!

We explore the situation of the second-hand sector in the EU and its member states. From 2025, seperate collection of textiles will be mandatory. How cam the increased volumes be handled? Which policy recommendations should be considered? How can design for reuse help?

International online conference with presentations in forum and discussions in groups (country groups, topic groups). The language of the event is English.

Saturday 05 June 2021, 3 pm – 6 pm CEST (15:00-18:00): Second-Hand Counts – What to do?

Production of clothes causes much pollution. Second-hand helps, as it decreases the need for new clothes. What to do to promote second-hand, and how? Reduction of VAT on second-hand clothes and repair services would have a huge impact. Should we collect one million signatures across the EU (European Citizens’ Initiative) and how should we go about it? International online conference with presentations in forum and discussions in groups (country groups, topic groups). The language of the event is English.
