GFC has a goal: to be a Zero Carbon Conference by 2030.
In this conference, we welcome everyone engaged in the study and analysis of the fashion phenomenon - not only researchers from the academic world but, also innovative organisations and companies that work within the fashion system.
People and Planet need Sustainable Fashion. Sustainability needs Innovation, GFC is built on the concept of a sectoral innovation system.
