Centre for Public Policy Research (CPPR) jointly with All India Artisans and Craftworkers Welfare Association (AIACA), the Foundation for MSME Clusters (FMC), and Save The Loom (STL), has scheduled to organise a Roundtable Discussion on Khadi with the theme “Towards Sustainability- Elevating Khadi as the Fabric of the Future” as part of CPPR’s project #UnLockKhadi: Towards Sustainability.
Date and Venue: 25th August (Thursday) 2022 from 9.30 AM to 1:00 PM IST at the USO International Centre, New Delhi.
CPPR had undertaken an extensive study on India’s Khadi sector with an objective to impact inclusive local growth and development of the sector and provide policy recommendations to increase the accessibility of the sector to global markets. This Round Table, which is organised as a part of this project, shall discuss the future of Khadi and deliberate on the various rules and regulations along with plans for market readiness to take Khadi to an enterprise model which requires going beyond the present institutional mechanisms. The need of the hour is to hand over the baton to a young and dynamic ecosystem which champions the cause of Khadi globally. The round table shall feature Khadi institutions, designers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, e-commerce players etc. The suggestions and ideas emerging from the conference will feed into a Policy Brief which our team of researchers at CPPR are working on and which will be submitted to the government departments concerned.
