Movers & Makers 2018

We’re always on the lookout for people that carve their own path – the ones we call ‘Movers & Makers’.

Today, we’re highlighting our first collection of people who caught our attention and held it fast. Some you may know well, others were likely under your radar – until now. There’s something about each that inspires – their project, their impact on the world, their angle of approach to a problem easily missed, or their unwavering pursuit of a seemingly impossible goal.

How did we find them? We scoured airport lounges, urban centers, and every nook and cranny of the internet to bring together a list that cuts across disciplines and industries.

We found movers and makers everywhere. Some are clearing the ocean of harmful plastics, others are changing the shape of education, others are heavy into geriatric death metal. There’s even a guy known professionally for his advice to ‘not give a f**k.’

This is Movers & Makers 2018 - dig in, get inspired and let us know who you’d include in next year’s edition!
