Back in 2007, during the preparations of the Fair Fashion Affair with Cecilia Palmer, showing freshly started ethical brands like Slowmo, Magdalena Schaffrin or Armedangels in an improvised yet momentous event, I got in contact with this friendly, newly started blogger Christoph Harrach who wrote under the name Karmakonsum..
Shortly after, he founded the Karmakonsum Conference, which rapidly became one of the most significant events for sustainable lifestyle in the German speaking area. Back then in collaboration with Noel Klein-Reesink, who nowadays runs the sneaker brand Ekn Footwear, he brought this conference to be a place that brings together people in an inspiring and connecting setting. It welcomes people that are interested to do yet more then “just” a little extra of ethical labeling or CSR monitoring, people that practice their idea of sustainability in their daily lives as well as professionally. Wether CEO’s, social entrepreneurs or hardcore activists, this conference brings them together and makes them share a common spirit. A spirit of friendliness, forward vision and positive intent. The accompanying camp and award also make it the right place to go for start-ups.
Over the recent years, the conference got a slightly more spiritual approach, but with an open-minded, inter-religious set up. This year the lead topic is Simplicity in Business. Breath in. Breath Out. Get Your Ticket. It is that simple. Be there!
