Online launch circular textiles brochure with State Secretary Stientje van Veldhoven

Holland Circular Hotspot YouTube livestream | 28th of September 2020

On Monday 28 September from 16: 00-17: 00 RVO and Holland Circular Hotspot will launch the brochure about the circular textile industry “From Linear to Circular in the Textile and Apparel Industries – Let’s make the circular shift together“. Using striking Dutch examples, the brochure shows that a circular textile industry is possible and necessary. There are already many circular possibilities in all steps of the chain that can also be applied on a large scale and internationally.

In a round table discussion, leaders and pioneers from the sector will discuss the ambition and opportunities to use more circular raw materials. State Secretary Stientje van Veldhoven of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management will be present and will indicate the importance of this subject within the Dutch government policy. She will share her vision and ambitions for the sector with the audience.

The launch will take place in Circl in Amsterdam, as part of the the Dutch Sustainable Fashion week. People can join the session via a livestream on the Holland Circular Hotspot YouTube channel. Online participants can ask questions to the table guests. Conversations will be in Dutch, English subtitles will be added later.
