Co-constructing a new paradigm in harmony with “the living”

It is time for our consciousness to rise, it is time to put the intelligence of nature at the heart of a humanist renaissance and to join forces to co-create new healthy, prosperous, inclusive, benevolent and joyful lifestyles.

A “Think tank” and a “Do tank”

SUMus considers that tomorrow's society will be organized more and more around the places of life that are cities and villages and that the most important thing will be experimentation and the strength of example . This is why SUMus is both a “ Think tank ” and a “ Do tank ”.

Venice, pilot city of a future Eden

After the Covid, many have understood that it is urgent to reinvent themselves. SUMus has chosen Venice as the “laboratory of the future” to initiate this movement of renewal, this ideal of life that new generations expect.

Giving a Voice to Venetians

SUMus went to meet the inhabitants of the Venetian archipelago regardless of their age, profession or history.
We interviewed them about their way of life and the future of their city. Let's listen to them!
