Royal Opera House, Copenhagen
Cycle once a year (May)
Global Fashion Summit (formerly known as Copenhagen Fashion Summit)

Since its first edition in 2009, Copenhagen Fashion Summit has established itself as the nexus of agenda-setting discussions on the most critical environmental, social and ethical issues facing the industry, people and our planet.


The Summit has been spearheading the sustainability movement in fashion for the past decade by bringing together global industry leadership, change makers and thinkers to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable fashion industry. It represents not just a leadership forum but an interactive space that aims to inspire leaders to act now.


Copenhagen Fashion Summit is organised by Global Fashion Agenda, a non-profit leadership forum on a mission to drive urgent change in the fashion system to work within planetary boundaries and meet the Global Goals.
