For several years now, this mission has focused on the Group’s defence of women’s rights, as well as its convictions regarding sustainable development and the fostering of young talent. Alongside Gucci, the Group’s leading luxury brand, and within the framework of the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund, the Kering Foundation has supported the annual Spotlighting Women Documentary Award, which recognises three films that highlight the courage, strength and commitment of women around the world. The Kering Foundation also sponsors feature films directed by women, such as Sherry Hormann’s Desert Flower (2009), which addresses the dangerous and traumatic practice of female circumcision. This year, the Kering Group is backing Luc Jacquet’s feature film, Ice and Sky, which tells the unique story of glaciologist and climatologist Claude Lorius,among the first scientists to have discovered climate change. 
In addition, Kering has been a partner of L’Ecole de la Cité since it was founded in 2012 by director Luc Besson; the film school provides vocational training to students looking to work in the industry. 
Women in Motion: in concrete terms ‘Women in Motion’ Talks: discussing the role and importance of women in film ‘Women in Motion’ consists first and foremost of Talks, a series of open encounters with emblematic women and men from the film sector who wish to share their views about the issue of women and cinema. The goal is to create 
a space for discussion allowing industry professionals of every nationality to come together and exchange views. Hour-long discussions will be organised daily around one or more guests – notably from among the major names of the official selection – chosen in partnership with the Festival de Cannes team. Guests will be interviewed by a host prior to a Q&A session with the audience, composed of around forty journalists and industry professionals. ‘Women in Motion’ Awards: celebrating talented women As of 2016, ‘Women in Motion’ will also include two awards. The first will be awarded each year in recognition of a personality’s contribution to women and the film industry. The second will recognise a talented young female in cinema, chosen by the first winner.In 2015, to celebrate the launch of the ‘Women in Motion’ Prize, a special Honorary Award will be presented to a woman whose career and personal commitment reflect the values defended by the initiative. The award will be presented during a Presidential Dinner, organised by François-Henri Pinault, Thierry Frémaux and Pierre Lescure.
By putting the spotlight directly on talented women from all walks of cinema, and by giving a voice to female film industry experts, ‘Women in Motion’ aims to become a central event at the Festival de Cannes.

Italy has always been in the forefront in design and manufacturing, definitely one of the best if not the best in these fields. 

High standard in quality and functionality in design has been more like a strong and important tradition in this country.
Hence their international events such as Made Expo aside from Salone Mobile, Venice Art Biennale, Venice Film festival,
and Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana to name the important few are main events that command respect and prestige in the world at large.
As expectations ran high for the trade show centred on architecture, building construction and sustainability, the 7th MADE EXPO on architecture and the building industry was focused and directed back to growth.
With its updated marketing approach with the sign of the times,  this international event/trade show has gone headstrong with direct and progressive promotions internationally online with both its marketing and ticket sales.
Therefore its strong social media strategy has increased its popularity and following.
The 4 themed exhibitions that it has (1-MADE Construction & Materials, 2-MADE Building Envelop & Windows, 3-MADE Interiors & Finishes, 4-MADE Software, Technologies & Services),
6 major events (1-Building the Expo, 2-Build Smart, 3-Building Envelop & Windows Forum, 4-MADE for Contract Hotel, 5-MADE for Retail, 6-MADE in Concrete),
and 8 halls at the Rho Fairgrounds has insured the success of another very important international event in Italy this year, aside from the BiennaleSalone del Mobile, and the World Expo.
As there were over 30 conferences and workshops, there was an overwhelming offering for learning opportunities with regards to innovation and sustainability.
Official delegations from the 24 participating countries from Algeria, Angola, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, China, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, India, Iran, Israel, Kazakhstan, Lebanon,
Morocco, Mozambique, Poland, Qatar, United Kingdom, Republic of South Africa, Russia, Sweden, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, and the USA were all represented.
Interestingly enough this year's trade show has in a way become something like a world peace congress with a few currently conflicting countries participating together side by side.
Perhaps this year's highlight at the Milan Architecture Design Building -MADE Exposition 2015 was the preview of the World Expo 2015 to be hosted again in Milan the second time around (the first time was in 1906).
This Universal Exposition which was previously hosted by Korea in 2012 will now take place from the 1st of May until the 31st of October 2015 in Italy.
The building works have started rigorously since 2012 on a 1 million square meter space @ Rho Fiera, Milan.  
With just about 1 more month to go, rapid works continue progressively as seen in our special tour of the site where 13 of the world's leading architecture firms are present in action:
-Studio Nemesi (Italy)
-Masterplanstudio (Angola)
-Studio Simmetrico (Azerbaijan)
-Studio Stefano Pierfrancesco Pellin (Brazil)
-Studio Link-Arc (China)
-Studio Cardenas (Colombia)
-Studio Foster & Partners (UAE)
-Architetto Wiechell (Germany)

-Studio Michele De Lucchi (Banca Intesa Corporate)

Herewith is the most up to date video coverage we filmed from our bus tour of the current progress in Building the Expo along with a couple of videos taken from the Press Conference in March 18,2015.
