(*) Sustainable Development means that as a global society we strive to maintain a delicate balance between the human need to improve lifestyles and feeling of well-being on one hand, and preserving natural resources and ecosystems, on which we and future generations depend.

FILMS AND KNOWLEDGE : A NEW CONCEPT

For 2008 we have expanded our concept and now also offer a "KNOWLEDGE ROOM" besides our traditional "VISION ROOM" ( a location where sustainable film screenings take place ). The "KNOWLEDGE ROOM" is a space where we will showcase presentations on sustainable breakthroughs in various categories.
It is through the "KNOWLEDGE ROOM" that the audience can gain information on products and corporate initiatives in 8 different categories ( art, business, lifestyle, culinary delight, entertainment, personal development, ECO tourism and sport). Each section can be sponsored by a company who shares their breakthroughs to a large audience. They can also donate the section to a "celebrity / personality" or an “up-and-coming” talent in the field. As to give all of our different partners an ongoing platform, we also launched the Sustainable Styles magazine.

SUSTAINABLE STYLES

The Sustainable Styles ( www.sustainablestyles.com ) magazine got launched last year. It is the global magazine that informs and entertains an international readership on sustainable consumer lifestyle solutions. The magazine also gives a playground to the movers and the shakers who style our planet with their unique creations. Eight sections on art, sustainable business news, lifestyle, entertainment, food, personal development, sports & eco-tourism bring you the new trends in one of the fastest growing markets.
