June 18, 2015 – The Conscious Team, Shinola, and Detroit change-makers came together for the celebration release of Conscious Issue 03. Our most recent issue encourages others to “Think and Act Forward. Leave A Legacy.”

The social good / social event was sponsored by Shinola at their Flagship store in Detroit. Shinola represents conscious culture with their dedication to creating and building products in the USA. Shinola features a variety of lifestyle products and is most famous for their watches. A special thank you to Shinola for giving Conscious the gift of celebrating a milestone in their space!

Conscious’ love of travel leads us to new cities to engage and celebrate a city’s culture, people, and community. Therefore, this release party was meant to foster community, learn new stories, and celebrate America’s greatest comeback city.

The social good party commenced at 7pm with mixing and mingling, followed by a Conscious Team speech with highlights of our worldwide community, our vision for 2015, and a huge thank you to all of the supporters that keep building Conscious Magazine everyday. To really engage the crowd, we launched an icebreaker encouraging folks to pair up with one person they didn’t know and share their favorite thing about Detroit and a hidden talent. This is when the conversation really got going.

To close the evening, we stood together to say cheers to Detroit’s promising future. Detroit is a symbol that however many times we may fall, what really matters is that we get back up. In light of the toughest challenges, the great people of this city have rallied together to create change across the board from technology, farming, education, the arts, and more.
