CSIRO Circular Fibres Pitchathon

Fibres and textiles are fundamental to how well humans live and flourish. We are seeing impacts of fibres and textiles on people, the environment, and economies – positive and negative. We are also seeing big changes in how fibres and textiles are made, used, and disposed of. There are now shifts towards closed-loop systems, away from linear-systems, in resource flow and energy use.

Open to High School, and TAFE/Undergraduate Students, the Pitchathon is a challenge to generate and pitch an idea for sustainable fibres and textiles. In a 3 minute pitch video, we want to hear your ideas for:

Redesigning fibres
Lessons from First Nations
Tracking fibre lifecycles
Fibre waste

The Pitchathon opens Tuesday 15 March and closes Monday 2 May.
