DISCOVER THE SDGS – TO POWER THE DECADE OF ACTION

We are excited to announce that this year Arch & Hook will be part of ‘Discover the Sustainable Development Goals’ virtual event from 1 – 30 December 2020!

Organized by the Conscious Fashion Campaign in collaboration with The United Nations Office for Partnerships. Conscious Fashion Campaign is an awareness-driven initiative that was founded by social entrepreneur, Kerry Bannigan, and engages leading global fashion industry events to accelerate collective action in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Arch & Hook is dedicated to advancing The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Built on the principles of responsible industry practices, transparency, circularity, and sustainability, our entire business model is dedicated to driving and demanding responsible production and consumption.

We believe that together we can work towards a more sustainable future. That is why we are proud to support this event to share our sustainability thought leadership and empower fashion and retail, which are some of the most negatively impactful industries on the planet.

The event features designers such as Anyango Mpinga who is also the founder of Free As A Human Foundation, Gabriela Hearst, and so much more.

The aim of this event is to advance knowledge and strengthen engagement from the global fashion industry to further support the ‘Decade of Action’ to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals – the 17 goals to transform our world. There will be a ‘Discover the SDGs’ online exhibit, which will feature a variety of tools and resources for industry stakeholders. This monthlong event will also have fashion industry-specific sessions with business leaders, UN officials, and other stakeholders, including organizations, brands, and business such as Vogue Business, Kering, CFDA, Boston Consulting Group, Lenzing, Allbirds, PVH Corp, British Fashion Council, Queen of Raw, Nike, and so much more.

You can view all the speakers here.

This is a critical time to accelerate partnerships to address the world’s biggest challenges – from eliminating poverty, hunger, and inequalities to reversing climate change and unsustainable consumption and production practices. The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries, and that is why it is seen as one of the important allies for the United Nations in this Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs by 2003.

‘Discover the SDGs’ is powered by Arch & Hook, Artistic Milliners, and Lenzing with support from Interwoven, ITL Group, and Orta.
