LIVE SESSIONS WITH EXPERTS
Bi-weekly sessions with experts who will share their expertise in different areas: storytelling, business modelling, pitching and distribution.
CO-CREATE WITH FELLOW PARTICIPANTS
We will help you match with other creators from all over the world with similar interests and complementary skills.

and subject experts to support your project development.
THERE IS NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL.
We want to take advantage of this opportunity to create momentum and break down silos between climate activists, government, technologists and the creative community to establish new lines of action to build a better world post CRISIS.
This virtual discussion series will spotlight artistic inspiration and successful campaigns for impact. It will unite artists with experts in the subject matter, share important insights and successful campaign methodologies and outline clear ways to support each cause.
This series will tackle the challenges, trends and opportunities affecting climate action, urban sustainability and XR, taking into consideration the rapid changes we face as a society. It will accept that in this uncertainty, there is opportunity to reorient our priorities and outline predictions and suggestions for achieving these goals.
"We have the responsibility to create our future. This is not about sitting back and just by default letting the future happen. This is about a future by design and by intent, by collective intent perhaps even more importantly”
We select and publish some of the best projects within the community and we invite the creators to share their work in our Creators Series.
