In our increasingly interconnected world, all issues are global issues. Activism, diversity, equality, sustainability—all of these are topics with an international scope in our globalized society. More and more, we are realizing how our individual choices resonate on a larger scale and our responsibility to the planet we live on.


In this issue, we aim to take a larger view on the topics that affect our everyday lives and how they tie into the life of our planet. Our cover subjects are globetrotters with a purpose: Explorer and adventurer David de Rothschild uses his visibility to reject the man vs. nature narrative and encourage us to care for our environment, while model and entrepreneur Liya Kebede puts her fashion label to work supporting female artisans in Africa. While we’re on that subject, we’ll also tackle the enduring question of how to be a conscientious consumer and adventurer and share EDITION Hotels VP of Brand Experience Ben Pundole’s suggestions on mindful traveling.


This issue offers fresh visions on the future of retail, landscape design, art, food, nightlife, and streetwear from some of the globe’s most inspiring talents, all of them using their creativity as forces for change. The lesson, perhaps, to take away from all of them is that everyone has a role to play in creating the world we want to live in. The opportunity is yours—and all of ours—and we can’t afford to waste it.
