Now, we are inviting your company or organisation to market yourself at the Baltic Wool Conferene on 7-8 October 2021. The conference is a meeting place for companies in the wool industry in the countries around the Baltic Sea. Initially, it was intended as a physical meeting place on Gotland. But due to the pandemic, the initiative temporary went digital. This year, we want to offer lectures, pre-recorded presentations from actors in the Baltic Sea region, panel discussions, speed-dating and other meetings and dialogues during the conference days. We also want to produce short films and other material.

By expanding the networks, making existing industry visible and creating collaborations, we strengthen the common goal of utilizing local wool in a sustainable way. The wool from our sheep that has enormous potential as a climate-smart resource for different uses. It is circular, renewable, sustainable, recyclable and naturally has many unique properties. It is an ultimate sustainable raw material when treated as a natural resource.

The meeting place will stimulate the growth and entrepreneurship around the resource wool in our part of the world. This year we aim to develop the digital meeting and networking and hope for at least 150 conference participants in the industry. We gather expertise and meetings in two tracks: “Research and Innovation” and “Research and Market and Business Opportunities.” The program group is working on developing a program. It will most likely have a great focus on sustainable and 100 % circular wool.

Baltic Wool Conference

7-9 October 2021

The Gotland Region believes that there is a great deal of knowledge and a great potential for development around the wool business in Gotland. Partly in entrepreneurship, but also locally in the micro industries. We would like to contribute to the development of the wool industry. We strongly believe this conference in the long term will contribute to many of our strategic focus areas. It will be a visitor occasion in October, it will lead to development of the wool industry and it will strengthen craftsmanship and a living cultural heritage.

Nils-Erik Selin, Head of growth and development, Region Gotland

The National Swedish Handicraft Council (NFH) is a government agency under the Ministry of Culture with the task of promoting handicrafts. Important partners for the Authority’s work are the country’s regions, civil society organizations and other cultural authorities. Priority areas include sustainability, cultural and creative industries as well as working with the intangible cultural heritage.

Since the autumn of 2018, a national developer has been focusing on sustainability and wool issues at NFH. The goal is an agenda for how the wool issues, like classification and infrastructure, should be solved at national level together with various actors and authorities. This is done in the form of seminars, conferences and networking, both within Sweden and abroad. The initiative “Baltic Wool Conference” is part of the work to promote the Swedish wool industry, create new contacts and opportunities for further development together with the countries around the Baltic Sea.

Annkristin Hult, National Developer

The Rural Economy and Agricultural Society Gotland, which hosts the Baltic Wool Conference, works for developing business in the countryside. Lamb production is an important industry in Gotland that provides both tasty lamb meat, shimmering lambskin and wool for many uses. Grazing animals keep the landscape open and provide biodiversity. We believe in the development of the Swedish wool industry in collaboration with our neighbors around the Baltic Sea.

Mats Pettersson, CEO of Hushållningssällskapet Gotland
