In Edinburgh, on April 2, 2019, the fourth annual conference of the "Fair Luxury" initiative was held for the first time together with the "Incorporations of Goldsmiths". While the conferences of the last three years have focused on creating awareness of the topic of "sustainability in the jewelry sector", the strategic orientation is shifting stronger to activities.

The 125 participants, mostly jewelers, art students and experts on design and mining, discussed the impact of the Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on the jewelry sector.

The conference focused on implementing sustainable production patterns in the education of jewelers and goldsmiths in UK colleges (SDG # 4), as well as the creation of responsible consumption and production patterns (SDG # 12). Individual initiatives on recycling, raw material procurement, energy and projects promoting responsible small-scale mining (gold & gemstones) were presented.

In addition to many contributions from the jewelry and raw materials sector, a representative of the textile industry was invited to exchange learning experiences. Vivienne Low (Fashion Revolution Scotland) referred above all to the impact of campaigning in social networks for the creation of attention and the attendant awareness of responsible consumption.
