Partnering up to explore options for a sustainable fashion industry in the Baltic Sea Region

In collaboration with policy area bioeconomy, policy area innovation arranged a session for the 7th Strategy Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region on fashionable bioeconomy. The session explored the potential for new innovative bio textiles and processes that can make a push towards a more sustainable fashion industry in the Baltic Sea Region. Wood fiber, milk protein and fish skin were presented as promising biomaterials for the future fashion industry, and the audience got a preview of these exciting trends from an on-stage fashion show.

You can watch the keynote speeches from the event here.
