Organizers of this year’s Budapest Design Week, held between Oct. 1 and 11, have announced that the event will focus on the circular economy. The week’s events will partially be held online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Anita Boros, State Secretary at the Innovation and Technology Ministry, said the transition to a circular economy, which aims to reuse products instead of discarding them and to eliminate waste from production, is a prevalent issue in all sectors of the economy.
Zsófia Bata-Jakab, head of the Hungarian Fashion and Design Agency (HFDA), said the agency is working to create an innovative, progressive event for the design-conscious public to meet designers, sales professionals and manufacturers.
