With €643 billion and more than 7.6 million people employed before the Covid-19 pandemic, the creative industry is one of the most vital sectors of the EU economy. Committed to supporting the sector, the EU has long made available a number of tools, including the WORTH Partnership Project, which has just completed its first edition and is about to launch its second, which will run until 2025. Its aun ti revitalise Europe’s creative industry sector and help it face future challenges. In the fourth panel at our 6th#GSFW we are focusing on the theme of the “creative Europe” relating to the transnational collaborations with special focus on the WORTH Partnership project.
Keynote speaker: Korinna Molla, coordinator of the WORTH Partnership Project. The further lecturers are: János Keresnyei and Assaad Awad, who are working in the Steering Board of this project.

As this panel would be the last one at the 6th#GSFW, we would like to introduce the TRANSYLVANIA TEXTILE & FASHION CLUSTER, which has an activity in all the themes of the previous panels too : education, sustainable fabrics, challenges in circular fashion too.
Transylvania Textile & Fashion is a regional cluster in the field of textile and fashion located in the central region of Romania. It was founded in 2013 and currently has 44 members, 32 of which are small and medium enterprises. Besides the SME’s, members include universities, research institutions, consulting companies and city councils.
The cluster is aware that mass production is not sustainable anymore and that the future belongs to smaller, flexible companies that can adapt to market volatility, can produce in small series customer-oriented or even unique products all with an emphasis on sustainable and eco-friendly concepts. The cluster represents companies, start-ups and authorized persons whose activity is based on these concepts, offering good examples with an emphasis on the Sustainable Development Goals.

On 11th June 2021 we would like to organise an eco fashion show presenting very beautiful sustainable collections of some Hungarian eco brands and designers. The venue and host of this offline event with streaming is Balatonboglár offering a wonderful natural catwalk at the beach of Balaton at SABA-HÁZ: 

We called the designers from abroad too to join us with their own video presentations made at similar beautiful places to enable the audience to learn the natural treasure of their country too.

The video fashion shows and presentations will be broadcasted on YouTube Premier Live
