WOVEN: Microfiber Series

June 17 , 8:00 am June 18 , 5:00 pm EDT

Join hosts The 5 Gyres Institute and HATCH for a transformational two days of learning, leadership, and cross-sector networking in Los Angeles, California. Together the group will lay the groundwork for collective action – that companies, communities, policymakers, and citizens can look to for microfiber pollution solutions up- and downstream.

The WOVEN Symposium Series brings together the best minds across industries – from science to supply chain, materials design to filtration technology, research to reuse – to develop a collective vision for reducing microfiber pollution. Our current state of scattershot solutions cannot keep pace with the growing problem, but together, we can unlock a collective vision – a Roadmap to Reduce Microfiber Pollution.

  • Unpack the existing science and research;
  • Discuss advances in technology (materials, filtration, etc.);
  • Weave together ongoing efforts around the world;
  • Share best practices across industry;
  • Identify challenges within existing frameworks, industries, and society;
  • Create a community of like-minded leaders across the textiles sector; and
  • Draft a framework that brings shared solutions across industry – building upon the Microfiber Action Roadmap of 2018

Held in-person at: Otis College of Art and Design, 9045 Lincoln Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045
