The UN Decade of Action was proclaimed at the beginning of 2020. The global community has 10 years from 2020 to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to which the United Nations member states have committed themselves in Agenda 2030.
Since 2019, the Texpertise Network of Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH, Frankfurt/Germany, has been working with the Conscious Fashion Campaign and the United Nations Office for Partnerships (UNOP), New York, NY/USA, to bring the Sustainable Development Goals to all of their 58 textile events in the network worldwide. Numerous measures have already been implemented. Others are imminent.
From December 1-30, 2020, the Texpertise Network is taking part in the virtual learning experience “Discover the SDGs”, which was initiated by the Conscious Fashion Campaign in collaboration with the UNOP. The aim of the event is to strengthen the knowledge and commitment within the apparel industry that is needed to further support the Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs. One component of the event is a virtual and interactive exhibition on the 17 goals, as well as on-demand discussions with industry leaders, United Nations representatives and advocates of the United Nations.
“Discover the SDGs” has been online at http://www.discoverthesdgs.com
since December 1, 2020 and will continue until December 30, 2020. Registration and participation are free of charge.
