Descrição

Safia Minney, the driving force behind the global ethical fashion movement, will be speaking for the first time in Portugal!

Her career has been dedicated to leading the fashion industry shift towards fairer business practices. She pioneered the Fair Trade movement and founded the first certified ethical fashion brand, The People Tree; recently, she launched Po-Zu, an innovative sustainable footwear brand. Acclaimed author of "Naked Fashion", “Slave to Fashion” and “Slow Fashion”, Safia has also been featured as thought-leader in the “True Cost” documentary movie. Founding member of the Ethical Fashion Forum and Fashion Revolution, she’s been a key agent of change, championing the “Who Made my Clothes?” fashion revolution. Last but not least, the World Economic Forum has acclaimed Safia as one of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs time and time again.

From 18:00 - 18:30, Safia will provide a keynote speech on ethical fashion, sustainable manufacturing and transparency along the value chain.

Right after the keynote, from 18:30 onwards, Ms. Minney will be hosting a workshop on social entrepreneurship. Over the course of 1h30', Safia will share with the attendees her journey as a social entrepreneur, as well as a series of tools and teachings from her own experiences setting up The People Tree and Po-Zu. Safia will engage the audience by revealing what it takes to become a change-maker, as well as inspire the crowd to elaborate individual social impact projects and live a life of meaning.

What better time and place this special event than Greenfest? Portugal’s leading sustainability conference is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and we’ve joined forces to co-create a kickass event for all those of you interested in ethical fashion, #slowliving, and circular economy.
