Five different festivals, with mixed approaches and from various places across the world, celebrate and share the culture of collaboration. A dialogue on positive socio-environmental transformation platforms that use creativity and purpose as a force for cultural transformation. Each one in its own way, with its own theories of change and distinct networks, to better understand how to work together in an innovative way in the twenty-first century.

Circularity in Fashion in Brasil - Weber Amaral, Giuliana Ortega (18:00 GMT)

The Brazilian fashion sector represents 6% of the country's GDP (source: ABIT) and has great social and economic relevance for small, medium and large companies. Precisely because of its impact, fashion also has great potential to leverage the changes we need to implement towards a sustainable model. It's time to rethink fashion and move towards a new model. But how circular is the fashion industry in Brazil?
