The EU´s Green Deal and Design


The Euro­pean Green Deal and how it impacts design. Bowie Miles is a sus­tain­abil­i­ty expert with many years of expe­ri­ence in the appar­el and shoe indus­try. Bowie will give you an out­look into how new EU leg­is­la­tion will impact design in the upcom­ing years and how we can all prof­it from the long await­ed changes the EU has decided.

The time is now for us to change the indus­try. EU leg­is­la­tion, design­ing, green­wash­ing, con­sumer aware­ness or brand respon­si­bil­i­ty – these top­ics will be bro­ken down into bite sized pieces for you to digest. There­fore, the work­shop is intend­ed to pro­vide ori­en­ta­tion and aware­ness for the basics of the EU Green Deal – a sim­pli­fied trans­la­tion for you. In par­tic­u­lar, giv­ing you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to be the pos­i­tive change and shift your mind­set to adapt to the future – which is actu­al­ly now.

The work­shop organ­ised by bay­ern design is tai­lored for (indus­tri­al, prod­uct and mate­r­i­al) design­ers as well as for employ­ees from the areas of qual­i­ty assur­ance, prod­uct and mate­r­i­al devel­op­ment in var­i­ous sectors.

The first part of the work­shop will deal with the under­stand­ing the basics of EU Green Deal leg­is­la­tion and its build­ing blocks. Break­ing it down for prod­ucts, tex­tiles and cir­cu­lar­i­ty (includ­ing acronyms and time­lines) and explain­ing that a mate­r­i­al change is not always the best solu­tion. After this intro­duc­tion, par­tic­i­pants will be able to delve deep­er into the devel­op­ment, the impact of deci­sions and devel­op sus­tain­able scenarios.

The work­shop will also include an out­look by the speak­er on the mega trends and shifts in the indus­try. Ensure you become empow­ered to take the next steps with­in your industry.

Tick­ets for Euro 39,- (Euro 19,- for stu­dents and mem­bers of bay­ern design forum e.V.) are avail­able here.

Please note that the work­shop will be in English.

Bowie Miles

Since study­ing tex­tiles at school, Bowie was inspired to join the tex­tile indus­try and under­stood the need to dri­ve for a bet­ter plan­et. She has expe­ri­ence in design, yarn and fab­ric design, man­u­fac­tur­ing and prod­uct devel­op­ment through to retail, inno­va­tion and trend direc­tions. Her per­son­al­i­ty allows Bowie to embrace new chal­lenges and cre­ate a pos­i­tive impact by bring­ing peo­ple with her.
