Theme: Reborn

As the new decade of 2020 approaches, it is time to steer practices towards more sustainable solutions, instead of repeating the same mistakes.

But it is not the answer to what our minds need. It is time to pursue a bolder and more global approach in which fairness and horizontal growth are realised. Finding responsible consumption alternatives is becoming the norm.
