“Sustainability is all of these things: kindness and consideration, integrity and resilience, support and empowerment, education and action. Sustainability goes beyond the environmental. Respect for human rights and the inclusion of minorities are central concerns. If it is not inclusive, it is not sustainable”

Andrea Somma
CEO & Founder OMINA Foundation

Watch the Summit

New Economies

New business models are emerging due to the rise of new technologies and the increase of environmental awareness. Meet four case studies: Armarium, VillageLuxe, PlatformE, TROQUER.

Social Innovation

The fashion industry has one of the least transparent supply chains. But this doesn’t have to be the case. We present some of the world’s most relevant examples of fashion as a facilitator of social, cultural, and ecological resilience.

Creating a Culture of Sustainability

For too long, success has been synonymous with having a bigger house, a faster car, and a wardrobe full of clothes. Today we know that this has nothing to do with happiness. We present the pioneers that are working to revolutionize this model towards a wellness-oriented sustainable lifestyle.

Plastic Free Oceans

Each square mile of our oceans contain an average of 46,000 pieces of floating plastic, and the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating mass of manmade debris, is currently thought to occupy an area equivalent to three times the size of France. We present innovative and disruptive projects that aim to reverse this reality.
