Visia has an extensive experience of working with event organizers in creating and managing sustainable events.

We at Visia think that life cycle management, resource efficiency and circular economy are key elements in developing successful products and services. We provide diverse support for transition processes through experiments, assessments, evaluations and communication campaigns.
We at Visia believe that development cooperation should be a consistent, efficient and participatory process. Actions should meet local needs and take into account environmental impacts and vulnerable groups. Our special fields of expertise include sanitation, climate proofing, sustainable use of natural resources and human rights, underpinned by strong project management and implementation capability.
