Meet the Nordics hosts Sustainability Talk

For the sixth consecutive time, the popular press event Meet the Nordics will take place during Copenhagen Fashion Week. After introducing an industry panel talk on sustainability during Copenhagen Fashion Week AW19, Meet the Nordics will continue their focus on sustainability for their SS20 edition.

“Both as an industry and as consumers, we find it of utmost importance to have a deliberated approach to sustainability” states Anette Kjærgaard and Kim Grenaa.

Meet the Nordics’ ambition is to be a platform for discussion and shared opinions and perspectives. To shine light on the diverse ways of implementing a sustainable approach to business, Meet the Nordics are hosting their panel talk with Scandinavian industry insiders, with the aim to share experiences and foster an inspiring industry dialogue. On the panel this season is CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Week Cecilie Thorsmark, communication director and founder of House of Dagmar Karin Söderlund, founder and designer of Kinraden Sarah Müllertz, CEO and founder of Carcel Veronica D’Souza and CEO of Aiayu Maria Glæsel.

The panel has been chosen based on their diverse approaches to sustainability, and ways of implementing it in their businesses. Sharing knowledge, insight and different perspectives and experiences carries the potential to shine light on new ways of making the fashion industry more sustainable. Going forward, Meet the Nordics’ ambition is to launch the event during Paris Fashion Week.

The panel talk will take place at the Meet the Nordics’ networking breakfast.

Meet the Nordics takes place Wednesday 7 August at Fredericia Furniture from 8.00 – 12.00.
