202030 – The Berlin Fashion Summit Edition #8 // 2 & 3 July 2024

Lectures, panel discussions, workshops and networking events - Sustainable fashion experts and enthusiasts meet on July 2nd and 3rd at the 202030 - The Berlin Fashion Summit in BIKINI Berlin at the Zoological Garden. The motto of the eighth edition? RE/GENERATE IMPACT.

During the two-day 202030 – The Berlin Fashion Summit Edition conference, thought leaders and key players from the fields of fashion and sustainability discuss innovative solutions to the pressing issues of the time.

With the 202030 Summit, we cover a wide range of topics – from circular economy and innovative materials to sustainable storytelling and the topic of cultural sustainability. Only if we change our consumption, work and life culture can we bring sustainability from theory into practice and thus into life. Magdalena Schaffrin, studio MM04


The two-day programme brings together important voices from the value chain: from brands, from research and from media perspectives. International speakers include Lavinia Muth and Tanita Hecking, authors of the book “The Crisps”, fashion journalist Fatima Njoya, Roman Houlbreque from Retraced, Mikko Suikosaari from Ninyes, Niki de Schryver, founder of the platform for sustainable fashion and plastic-free lifestyles COSH! and Thomas Schneider, who will present his bio-based shoe and accessory material HyphaLite. Bobby Kolade will talk about how the EU’s Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policy can be implemented worldwide. #StopWasteColonialism

In addition to the stage program, the topics of waste colonialism, next-generation materials, decarbonization and rental systems can be explored in more depth in workshops. Registration for the workshops is possible on the ticket platform or by direct inquiry.

We believe in the ‘alliance of the willing’: that change in the fashion industry is possible when determined minds work together. That’s why we continually bring together interdisciplinary perspectives and create a space for inspiring and enriching exchange. Max Gilgenmann, studio MM04

Networking will also play an important role in the July 2024 edition: Following the program on the opening day, there will be a cocktail hour that will provide the 202030 community with an inspiring platform for exchange. On the afternoon of July 3, groups from the audience can discuss common key topics on an equal footing and contribute ideas for the sustainable transformation of the fashion industry as part of the Barcamp mini-workshop “unconference”.

Tickets starting at 83 euros (early bird) or 95 euros are available here >>>
