Upcoming events

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the Netherlands is very pleased to invite our members to Tech Forum 2020 organized by our colleagues at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce UK.

Venue: Virtual

Technology can be transformational. But how is tech tackling the fundamental challenges facing us within environmental and social impact? Join us at Tech Forum 2020 – a virtual and collaborative gathering – as we discuss the technologies of the future, and tech as an enabler for good. How can ideas and innovation behind ideal driven technology and conscious investments be used to drive change? Through keynotes, panels, pitching sessions from aspiring start-ups and interactive talk shows, and with a stellar line-up of speakers from both sides of the North Sea and Europe, we explore the technologies shaping the future and how the industry, academia and policy makers can solve the world’s problems together.

Join us and meet leading and successful Swedish and British entrepreneurs, large corporates on their own digitisation journeys, UK public bodies in transformation, and some of the many venture capital investors browsing the space in Europe’s financial capital.

GREEN FASHION. GREEN FUTURE | Is the Future of fashion Green?

With a call for sustainable fashion that is more conscious (buying less, using better materials), fair (social justice in the supply chain, livable pay) and circular (sharing/renting business models, longevity, repairing and clothes with stories), how does a sustainable fashion company look like? What do they produce, where, in what way and in what quantities? Who are their customers? Who are the producers? What materials do they use, how do they sell clothes and for how much?

  • Insights into the big systemic changes transforming the industry and recreating the trends. Is sustainable collection the answer? Or do we need a strategic change and new business model? How to achieve this?
  • Big brands, new brands. Collaboration with innovative start-ups and scaling of ideas

about the secrets of fashion business? We should wear our values – clothes that are
sustainably and ethically made, providing also those who make them a decent living.

for?
• Raising transparency, campaigning, social justice, spotlighting solutions and
bright ideas
• The environmental impact of fashion
• Social impact of fashion – Sweatshops #whomademyclothes #payup
• Company values and importance of purpose
• Role of campaigns and advertising – using fashion as a force for good
