Beskrivelse

Fiber, like food, is part of everyday life. And while the development of local food has resulted in increased knowledge and choices, can the same be said for textiles and clothes?

This one-day event will explore what localism means for clothing from a range of perspectives: Culture, tradition, nature management, regenerative farming, ‘green growth’, pride, diversity, self-esteem and taste.

In conjunction with greater focus on local raw materials and ‘in-sourcing’ of production, the discussion quickly emerges about what this really means for the environmental challenges and for other aspects of today's escalating and demanding patterns of consumption.

And what does it mean for the local community in Nordhordland, Norway’s first Biosphere Reserve?

To learn more about this, we have invited international academics and experts working with the field in different ways.
