WSO Day -23rd September 2023

We hereby invite you to participate to the next WSO Day, the annual networking event of the World Sustainability Organization and Foundation which will provide a complete update on the Friend of the Sea and Friend of the Earth projects.


The event will begin on the morning of Saturday the 23rd and, after a buffet, it will end with a wonderful fashion show (6PM with cocktail to follow) of both Italian and international Friend of the Earth certified brands, with clothes worn by models that are treated in compliance with the principles of ethics.


The speakers will provide information on market trends related to the world of sustainability, including an update on the various standards developed by the WSO in the Friend of the Sea and Friend of the Earth context.


It will be an opportunity for discussion, exchange of information and also valuable new contacts between producers and distributors, media, institutions and NGOs.


The event will be free and includes buffets and cocktails in a prestigious building in the centre of Milan, via Santa Marta 18.
