This issue’s cover star is Nike, the global sportswear giant, which has had its fair share of controversies over the years. We look at how the company is standing up for civil rights through its powerful advertising campaigns as Just Do It turns 30. By teaming up with some of the world’s best athletes, including Serena Williams and Colin Kaepernick, the company has put strength and diversity at the forefront of its messaging, asking us all to ‘Dream Crazier’.
Our stories journey from Palestine to Patagonia and span five continents, as we talk to the inspiring people and businesses from around the world, doing good things for people and the planet. Meet the Palestinian olive farmers who are working against the odds, and under an imposing illegal military occupation, to get their produce out of Palestine and onto the world’s shelves. We talk to the Patagonian company repurposing Chilean fishing nets into stylish sunglasses, cleaning up the oceans with every pair.
We’re talking women in tech with tech journalist Holly Brockwell; females in film with Thalia Mavros, former creative executive director of Vice Media now heading up The Front; and we talk period poverty in this issue’s long read.
And, plenty of other inspiring stories weaved throughout, from ethical coffee traders, to Kenyan shoemakers, and the problem of anti-nesting-nets… We spend 24 hours in the world’s most expensive city, Singapore; and we discuss nuclear power, and ask if it’s actually one of the world’s most sustainable energy sources.
