BerliNordik was an international communication platform with a view to connecting young Berlin designers with their colleagues from nordic countries on the subject of sustainable design. In this way, BerliNordik supported the public discussion, a targeted promotion of young talents as well as a national and international knowledge exchange.

BerliNordik took place in nordic capitals. After the project »bright green fashion« and a successful project start in 2009 in Copenhagen, BerliNordik stayed in Berlin for the year 2010. Project partners were the IDZ, CREATE BERLIN, INPOLIS UCE GmbH and Fashion Patrons.
