International Fashion Revolution Week made its debut in Penang, inviting individuals to participate in a movement to address the environmental and ethical challenges within the fashion industry. The event highlighted how purchasing new clothes from malls often contributes to one of the world's most polluting sectors, harming both the planet and the basic human rights of garment workers. The message was clear: individuals had the power to drive change and spark a revolution by reevaluating their clothing choices because, ultimately, we are what we wear.

The Penang Urbanites was a platform inspired by the need to create an avenue for those with Penang's best interest at heart to interact, discuss, and debate issues of sustainable development in Penang. In partnership with the Hin Bus Depot, they screened "Urbanized," a documentary by Gary Hustwit on what makes cities livable. This documentary had been reviewed by the New York Times as a documentary "worth venturing out of your room, climbing on your bike or boarding a low-emissions bus and fighting your way through a crowd to see." The screening was followed by a brief discussion and a Q&A session with the analysts from the Urban Studies department of Penang Institute.

IbAF collaborates with various organizations in Penang to foster connections between artists and food professionals, encouraging people to think about the role of food in our society and sparking innovative ideas about lifestyle choices. Situated in Penang, this year's IbAF focuses on promoting the uniqueness of local food and art through sustainability, addressing the entire food chain from production to consumption.
