Wool, Tourism and Innovation: mini-conference online

"Six Innovative Ways to Raise the Value of Wool – Through Rural Responsible Tourism and Persistence"
In a world more and more focused on sustainable practices and knowing where things come from, wool is gaining recognition as the multi-purpose golden material that it is.
Join us online for this mini-conference (held in English!) on April 20, 13:00 - 15:00, where six speakers will tell their stories and how they go about making great products that are good for the globe and the local economy. The conference is part of the Icelandic Textile Center led project "Wool, Walks and Workshops", funded by NORA (North Atlantic Cooperation).
