A-B-Circular Project

"Circular Couture" is part of the larger A-B-Circular project, which aims to promote climate-neutral production of "Made in Berlin" products in the design/fashion and architecture/construction industries, while closing material cycles. From April 2024 to October 2025, this initiative will develop and implement innovative cooperation and networking formats to facilitate the exchange and implementation of circular economy principles in both sectors. Key activities include the development of two ready-to-use toolkits ("Circularity Builder" and "Circularity Designer"), the organization of events and workshops, as well as presentations at relevant industry events. The project's focus is on linking research results from the Berliner Universities of Applied Sciences (BHT, HTW, and HWR) in the field of circular economy with social and environmental entrepreneurship, leading to the development of a network of solution providers for the respective industries in the capital region and enabling the creation of digital solutions to promote sustainable practices and business models.
Join us at "Circular Couture: Embracing Sustainable Design and Fashion" and be part of the movement that is shaping the future of design and fashion, one sustainable step at a time.
The project A-B-Circular is funded by the Berliner Senatsverwaltung für Wirtschaft, Energie und Betriebe as part of the Call for Circular Econony within the Berliener Industry Masterplan 2022-2026:
