Speakers from sports and outdoor brands including Patagonia, Norrona, Vaude, Houdini Sportswear and others will take part in a summit on sustainability in Oslo on Nov. 17. The event, which is entitled “Forward Thinking: Summiting with Sustainability,” is organized by the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture in collaboration with 2025 Design. According to the organizers, Norway is a particularly suitable spot for the event and a good role model, considering that the country has the highest sales per capita in the world of sports equipment and clothing, and that Norwegian consumers are becoming more and more conscious of environmental and fair trade issues. Representatives from the sports and outdoor industry will join forces at the event to find business solutions with an eye on design, sustainability and innovation.
