On 17 and 18 May, the Textiles Partnership members will meet at BeachMitte in Berlin.
At this year's Working Meeting, not only the location is special, but also the concept deviates from the usual process. Unlike in previous years, the participants determine the agenda themselves on the second day and contribute their topics. Some may also be familiar with this unconference format as barcamp. The focus is not only on the exchange among each other, but also on the topics, questions or challenges that the members deal with and that they want to work on together.
17. May: Hybrid Working Meeting
The Working Meeting starts with a review of the year 2021 and an update from the Partnership Secretariat. The subsequent panel discussion "Mitigating climate risks in the textile and garment industry: How to achieve the 2030 goals of the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action" will focus on current developments in the reduction of greenhouse gases. Up to this point, the day is hybrid and virtual participation is possible. For all participants in presence, the day ends with a get-together in a relaxed and work-related atmosphere in the BeachMitte.
18 May: The Unconference
The unconference on the second day is planned as a solely face-to-face event. At the beginning, the participants have the opportunity to briefly present their topics (pitch). Afterwards, everyone votes on what they want to discuss in smaller or larger groups during the day.
At 2.45 p.m., Torsten Safarik, President of the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA), will give an input and answer questions about the Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains.
All Textile Partnership members have already been invited and will receive further information on the internal member area. If you are interested in participating in the Working Meeting, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
