Overcoming barriers to systemic circularity
Forum For The Future
Under pressure to tackle their huge ecological and social footprint, the textile and apparel industries are regularly seeking and introducing various circular innovations to reduce resources, waste, and overall impact on the environment. However, what is not clear is whether these innovations are actually contributing towards a much-needed deep transition towards a just and regenerative circular economy.
Forum for the Future aims to investigates the barriers that prevent circular innovations in the textile and apparel sector from achieving their full transformative potential and identify what actions can be taken to overcome them. The project will identify the points where systemic barriers present critical barriers to the creation, mainstreaming and scaling of circular innovations within the apparel and textile sector, as well as identify opportunities to prototype different relational dynamics between brands, retailers and manufacturers that support an urgent transition towards a circular apparel and textile economy.
