Wear It Live – Sustainability in Tech – The Future of Fashion, Textiles, and Electronics with Wearable Tech
What role can wearable and close-to-body technologies play in ensuring that the fashion, textiles, and electronics industries are sustainable?
Sustainability is important to early adopters and trendsetters of new technologies: it is the basis of success and acceptance of up-and-coming products. But sustainability does not come out of anywhere and must be included in a product’s early stages. In the fashion, textile, and electronics industries, there is a growing movement for change, to ensure that these industries reduce their societal and ecological footprint.
These industries are amongst the most wasteful industries in the world, using enormous quantities of water, oil, and energy to produce items that are easily discarded and replaced. They are gripped by overproduction to keep up with ever-changing consumer trends. We are excited to show you more about how wearable and close-to-body technologies can reduce waste, and give rise to new, sustainable business practices and products.
In this edition of “Wear It Live”, we invite experts from all related fields to discuss the role of wearables and close-to-body technologies in creating a sustainable future for the fashion, textile, and electronics industries.
The event takes place on Thursday the 4th of February 2021 at 6 pm – 8:00 pm CET
