A chance to reset our lives and to reimagine the most incredible future for all.

Watch day 1 speakers now – for what could be a life-changing experience. 

It’s extraordinary how resilient humankind is and how we can quickly adapt to, and even find opportunity in, the toughest of times. 

As COVID-19 has swept across the world, unequivocally impacting anyone standing in its way, humankind has had to press the pause button. Not since the Second World War have we seen the global population come to a standstill as world leaders have instructed us to stay home and stay safe.

It’s been a rollercoaster of emotion, with some people living in all consuming fear of the virus whilst others are reconnecting with loved ones and with nature, declaring how much they like the peace and the time to simply ‘be’.

Then there are those who are turning the worry and fear into productivity and finding new skills – baking in the pursuit of perfect sourdough, creating self-sufficient vegetable patches and embarking on long overdue DIY projects. Who knew how popular the simple life would become all of a sudden?

Despite the ongoing threat of the virus and the impending economic fallout, there are some flickering lights at the end of what seems to be a very long and dark tunnel. 

Dare we, for a second, dream of a better life and a better world? 

As dolphins glide through the Venice canals, goats take over a Welsh town and a global orchestra of birds strike up a beautiful symphony to take the place of polluting diesel engines and rush-hour chaos, we seem to be collectively yearning for something better. 

We decided to ensure that these challenging – devastating for so many – times are never forgotten and in an attempt to find our way through them and out of the other side, we are launching SHINEfest.

We have brought together incredible people from all around the world – adventurers and athletes, environmentalists and activists, entrepreneurs and creatives – to start conversations, to share personal insight and to help create a better world. Women, men and children who, like the rest of us, pursue happy and healthy lives and who simply need a healthy planet on which to lead them. 

SHINEfest is a coming together of humanity, a chance to reset our lives and to reimagine the most incredible future for all.
