Together we can make Carpi's and the world's fashion economy circular

Last century has seen Carpi as the birthplace of a flourishing ecosystem of small and medium companies that have made their way among the many challenges and opportunities of the Italian and international fashion economy.

The fashion industry has been one of the most significant manufacturing activities of our region and has brought jobs, wealth and pride to a great amount of people, making our district a leader in the textiles, knitwear and clothing sectors.

A turning point

But the world has come to a turning point, a new global crisis for which we hold responsibility. The fashion economy has increasingly turned into a "fast fashion global economy". In richest countries, garments frequently end up in landfills after being worn just a few times. Their lifespan has never been so short and, as if it is not enough, their quality is often so low that even recycling a few of their components is getting more and more difficult.

Besides, the current fashion economy is still relying too much on non-renewable resources. Synthetic fibers are produced from oil, fertilizers are required to grow cotton, chemicals are needed to dye and finish textiles. This is why, other than the great injustice and the extremely low wages that workers in this sector (more than 75 million in the world) often have to take, fashion is also linked to huge levels of greenhouse gas emissions and a comparable impact on climate change.

A better future

With our Climathon we want to raise our voices, gather our talents together and share our dreams and visions for a better future. We wish to see Carpi and many other Italian cities taking the lead of this revolution, in order to get to a circular and 100% sustainable fashion as soon as we can.

During our one-day-long Ideathon we will be supported by experts, startups and companies that are committed to change the way we think about fashion. Moving from design to responsabile communication and new business ideas we will imagine how to implement systemic innovations in the fashion industry and in society.

Carpi's Climathon events

Warm-up webinar with experts

This year we are hosting a warm-up online event with four experts in the circular fashion economy, design and communication. On November the 7th we are going to dive into the topic with an exciting interdisciplinary webinar, in order to get ready for the main Ideathon.

This webinar is highly recommended to all the participants in the Ideathon, who should register for both events.

Ideathon

The main Ideathon will take place online on November the 14th. It will involve three of the most interesting Italian startups in the circular fashion industry: Fili Pari, Rifò and Ogyre. Together with coaches they will support participants in making their way through three exciting challenges regarding circular fashion.

Please, remember that you are allowed to register only for 1 of the 3 challenges, which will take place simultaneously.

FAQ

I would really like to participate, but I can join only half a day. Can I register anyway?

Unfortunately, our Ideathon is structured so that participants are expected to be fully committed to solve our challenges, which will require the whole day on November the 14th. Thus you can not register for joining the Ideathon just half a day.

Is the warm-up webinar mandatory for Ideathon participants?

The warm-up webinar with experts, on November the 7th, is necessary to contextualize the work we are going to do on Ideathon day. This is why participants in the Ideathon should also register for the webinar via this website. The webinar is to be considered an integral part of the Climathon experience. 

I want to participate only in the webinar, do I have to register for the Ideathon too?

No, if you want to take part only in the webinar you only have to register for that.

Can I register for more than one challenge?

No, you are allowed to register just for one challenge.
