Community Meetup #6 Green Deal Circular Textiles

  • Innovative sustainable metropolis
  • On April 19 we organize the ‘Community Meetup #6 Green Deal Circular Textile’. We will do this during the REFLOW end event, in the evening at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam.

    We have been working together on the Green Deal Circular Textiles for some time now and we are well on our way to expanding this movement. The necessary innovations are often worked on the outskirts of organizations. That is very inspiring and also presents the necessary challenges.

    That is why we would like to invite you to participate in the sixth Meetup on April 19th. On the basis of interesting examples, we take a closer look at these multi-stakeholder collaborations, we learn from each other and, above all, we get to know each other a little better.

    This meetup is part of the REFLOW festival. The doors open at 7 p.m. The festival starts at 7.30 p.m. and the Green Deal Circular Textile meetup starts at 8.30 p.m.

    During this closing event, Amsterdam will present the results of the REFLOW pilot in which work was done on making textile use more sustainable and circular; from the DENIM deal to the circular procurement of care aprons and from the city wardrobe to the city pass campaign for clothing repair. That evening is a mix of professionals with everyone interested in a sustainable and circular clothing and textile chain.

    The place for the Green Deal Circular Textile community to come together!

    Programme

    • Claire Teurlings opens the Meetup, takes you through the program and gives a short update.
    • We then give the stage to a number of successful collaborations. What obstacles did they encounter along the way and how did they solve them?
    • Wouter de Waart of Rebelgroup shares his experiences about multi-stakeholder collaborations.
    • We are keen on hearing about your experiences, so we will discuss do’s and don’ts per table.
    • We will close the Meetup around 9.20 pm and then the REFLOW end event will end.

    Background information

    The Green Deal Circular Textiles focuses on innovative ways of closing the chain. The GreenDeal is a consortium of companies, governments and knowledge institutions that have signed intentions for the transition to a circular economy. The partners are working on various initiatives. Amsterdam Economic Board takes on a directing role in this. In 2022, the emphasis will be on strengthening the ecosystem and the foundation for expanding and scaling up circular activities. With the key partners, we develop and implement the organizational structure of the Green Deal through network management. We support (new) regional consortia for the recycling of non-reusable textiles and we build valuable partnerships with innovative and innovative parties that contribute to the same goals and our ecosystem.
