"My connection with Bright Sky came from Bart’s passionate wish to support people offering the kind of work we offer to bring their work to a wider audience. As a species, we are on an edge somewhere between crisis and opportunity and I support initiatives that seek to bring more consciousness in any and all areas of life. Bright Sky is such an initiative. I believe its success will be part of supporting many people across the globe to know who they are, find their purpose and live meaningful lives."
