The Green Collective is a new network platform, where varying sectors in the creative industry converge with a shared vision of sustaining biodiversity through innovative entrepreneurship.
By initiating The Green Architecture Competition (organized by the Netherlands Architecture Institute), The Green Design Competition (organized by Dutch Design Week) and The Green Fashion Competition (organized by Amsterdam Fashion Week), The Green Collective aims to stimulate a shift to a more ecological economy throughout the creative industry and to support interdisciplinary collaboration.
Furthermore The Green Collective aims to present the talented entrepreneurs within its network to a broader scope of industries, out of its belief that true innovation can only take place when boundaries are broken. It therefore aims to involve industries such as Chemistry, Energy, Water, Agriculture, Logistics and Horticulture in its development.
The Green Collective was initiated by Amsterdam Fashion Week (AFW) and is made possible by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation, in collaboration with Dutch Design Week and the Netherlands Architecture Institute.
