It’s a yearly event where we gather individuals from various backgrounds who are passionate about fostering sustainability on our planet.

We discuss and explore strategies for environmental stewardship, share ideas and learn from each other about what actions can we take in order to promote a healthier and more sustainable world for everyone.
