These are important values to cope with these times full of uncertainty in many senses: changes in Economy, social chaos, political instability, climate emergency.
This is a soothing colour, but at the same time it describes infinity: the sky, the sea, dreams and melancholy. It’s also many times linked to sadness. And some relate it directly to Generation Z.
