Filmar joins forces with Global Compact Network Italia for the ColorAMA for Sustainability 2018

Sustainable growth of the fashion system has to go through the awareness and participation of young people. With the goal of informing and involving students on the subject of sustainable design, Filmar SpA, has been promoting the ColorAMA Award for the last three years. Filmar is a member of the UN Global Compact and shares its Ten Principles on human and work rights, environment and anticorruption. Filmar promotes and works towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Colorama Award is an important platform for dialogue, capable of involving and stimulating the interest of new generations of young fashion designers towards different types of thought and design connected to the sustainability concept.
In particular, the 3° edition asked young fashion designers from all over the word to propose dedicated projects for the creation of a digital capsule collection taking inspiration from at least one of the topics proposed by United Nations’ SDGs.  capsule collections have been developed by using the ColorAMA web app, an innovative  digital and environmental friendly tool  that allows the  configuration of different  knitted items by  using Filmar yarns.
The winner of ColorAMA for Sustainability 2018 will be awarded €1500 on January 24 in Florence, during the Pitti Immagine Filati 84.
The initiative is organized by Filmar under the auspices of the Global Compact Network Italia.  
ColorAMA for Sustainability promotes virtuous and fruitful  partnership among private sector,  schools, institutions and international organizations  such as Global Compact Network Italia to enhance and promote an inclusive dialogue to support a  new culture of  doing business.
