NEWTOPIA OR DYSTOPIA - How to design and inspire such a polarised world?

Are we moving to a new landscape, where from science to the creative industries, there is new focus on innovation that great things can be achieved in a small space of time, that boundaries can be broken in a new, collaborative way of working? Or have we missed an opportunity to change our world as we crave security and the familiarity of how it was, stoking ever greater inequality, generational wars and dystopian visions over climate change. How to design and inspire such a polarised world? (EN)

The Vision of a New Textiles Economy

In a new textiles economy, clothes, textiles, and fibres are kept at their highest value during use and reenter the economy afterwards, never-ending up as waste. This vision is distinct and complements ongoing efforts to make the textiles system more sustainable by minimising its negative impacts. (EN)
