The Disruptive Innovation Festival is an online festival of ideas that asks the question: what if we could redesign everything? During the DIF, we’ll be asking our speakers to tell us what they think is in store for the future of the economy. While watching you can chip in with your thoughts and questions: sign up for a free My DIF account and ask your question through the discussion forum below the live stream!

The textiles and fashion industry is arguably the most lucrative, creative, consumer facing industry on earth, and we believe it has the power to change the world. Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the most polluting industries and one of the largest consumers of water, insecticides, pesticides, and energy — among other woes. But amongst our woes also lie opportunities. This session aims to cut through the noise, the pledges and the ambitions — in short, the long-standing blah blah surrounding "sustainability" in the fashion industry, and move straight to practice. Join Circle Economy’s Circle Textiles Team on a 5-step journey into circularity and to learn about the latest tools, innovations, and know-how that you need to challenge the status quo.
