Five consortium partners, including Ecopreneur.eu, have kicked-off a EU-COSME funded project “Fashion For Change”. Over the next three years, they will help SMEs, designers and start-ups from the European fashion sector scale-up and accelerate their sustainable businesses while increasing awareness about circular fashion among stakeholders, including consumers. The five consortium partners Civitta Eesti AS, Estonian Academy of Arts, Ecopreneur.eu, Katalista Ventures and Singleton from Estonia, Lithuania and Belgium combine their experience in sustainable fashion, innovation and start-ups, sustainable SMEs, circular economy, finance and business support.
Fashion for Change is targeting stakeholders from EU27 and all eligible COSME countries, including fashion industry, SMEs, designers, start-ups, investors, policy makers and civil society. The overall aim of the project is to provide financial and technical support for the small businesses in the industry, enabling acceleration and scale-up of innovative applications, products, processes and ideas for sustainable and circular fashion.
A quick poll has been set up for stakeholders to share their views on viable circular economy approaches, their positive impact, and how they can help us break free from linear production and consumption models. Click here for the 5-minute poll.
