Authenticitys Summit 2017 in Barcelona May 20 at 10am

Find out where it’ll be: Team Labs, how much it costs: 7.53€ for early bird buyers, who’s talking and why we’re doing this for the 2nd year running on the Summit’s website. Picture a panel, workshops, inspiring talks from different passionate entrepreneurs that work in these fields, the chance to connect with sustainability leaders who have become innovators in their disciplines. Take this opportunity to find like-minded people and understand how sustainability affects you and me!

Why sustainability is important for us and how we've applied it in the summit:

We believe there’s a way to travel and give back to the city you visit and by doing so, you also grow and transform as a person. You visit Barcelona for example, take a paddle surf lesson and help clean the beach whilst you learn the stories of the district the beach is in. Or you take a bike ride through the unseen side of Barcelona and visit an area, we are sure you wouldn’t casually stumble upon on your own and discover why this is. Get the tips, the stories of why it’s still under the radar and support a young entrepreneur who uses his revenue to support and NGO in Africa that has innovative educational projects.

We believe that when you travel you can forge meaningful connections with the people you meet along the way.

Find out how sustainable travel is possible from our speakers and the partners we work with to offer sustainable experiences throughout Europe and Latin America.

Fashion-wise, during the summit you'll learn about how you can transform the fashion world’s supply chains. If you love fashion, we also want to help you discover how and where to get the best garments designed and made by locals with friendly and non-exploitive techniques. Learn what sustainability in textiles is AND look amazing while purchasing sustainable garments. We want to take it a step further yet for this sustainability summit, and will encourage you to unleash your inner fashionista, come to the Summit and get inspired by a sustainable designer’s hub find out where fashion designers find inspiration and how to join this network. Become an eco-friendly fashion trendsetters and sustainable game changer.

Learn about the theory of Blockchain and how it can become a facilitator for creating social impact and transforming our society in a better one.

  Alternative Education is the third subject we chose for this sustainability summit.  Alternative or sustainable education refers to how we interact in our work and everyday lives with technological advances such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality. This progress demands that we rethink humanity and the ways we relate and learn. We will talk about new ways of learning, the advantages of sustainable education and effects it's having even in universities. Get involved in how sustainable development begins with education. The #ASummit2017 also has a competition for students in Barcelona who want to use their creativity to give back. If you feel inspired to use your creativity to create a change, this just might be it. We’d love to see you at the Summit so we can share our dream with you and hear what you have to say!

Driving change through transformation

In our modern and tumultuous times, “transformation” is somewhat of a buzzword. We have politicians who make sweeping claims to transform civil society and we have life coaches who tell us they can transform our lives—as long as we give them our vote or our credit card number. But here at Authenticitys, we believe that for lasting and powerful transformation to occur, it has to come from individuals going through internal and empathic life-changing experiences. (more…)

Authenticitys Annual Summit: Here’s what we talked about!
3 February, 2017 0
The United Nations has named 2017 as the Year of Sustainable Travel, and it’s with good reason: there has never been so much interest and engagement surrounding how we can enhance the experience of travel by making it more sustainable both for the planet as a whole and for the individual communities we travel to. For the 3 years, Authenticitys has been part of this movement, building an online marketplace for local and sustainable tourist activities by collaborating with social impact experience operators. Last month, we gathered at our headquarters in Barcelona to take stock of all we have achieved and everything we are looking to build in the future. (more…)

31 December, 2016 0
2016 has come to an end. A challenging year for many of us. The city terrorist attacks we have experienced in Europe, coupled with the multiple democratic results including Brexit, “Spain” and most recently Trump’s victory have been a tremendous disillusion and a feeling of step back for humanity.
