Textile Exchange Call for Breakout Presentations 
Submission period: February 18- March 19, 2021 @ 11:59pm PST
After March 19, we are unable to accept any other proposals for the 2021 conference.
All submissions will be notified via if they have been accepted or declined by June 1.

Textile Exchange has a limited number of Breakout Session slots available at our 2021 Textile Sustainability Conference in Dublin, Ireland and virtually on November 15-19, 2021. We strive to provide conference attendees with the most interesting, timely and relevant content that is aligned with our 2030 Climate+ Strategywhich has a goal of 45% reduced CO2 emissions from textile fiber and material production by 2030. The “+” in Climate+ allows Textile Exchange to prioritize climate while continuing to address other impact areas that are interconnected with climate in most situations (e.g., water, biodiversity and soil health). We will evaluate breakout session proposals against Climate+ and our 2021 conference theme: Reset. Rethink. Redesign. Regenerate.

All breakout sessions must be for educational purposes to drive action and to meet the goals of the Textile Sustainability Conference. You may assume that Breakout Sessions will be between 1-1.5 hours in duration, although this may change as we finalize the agenda. Please note that sales pitches or marketing in any form is not permitted at the Textile Sustainability Conference and will not be accepted by our reviewing team.

Preference will be given to Textile Exchange members and partners. Submissions must be an executive summary of 350 words or less sent in via this website. Only submissions submitted through this website will be eligible.
