When we first dreamed up the Skype Collaboration Project, one of the most inspiring brands we wanted to work with was Los Angeles-based Apolis. Their motto is “Advocacy through Industry,” and they believe in the power of business to make global change. The word apolis means ‘Global Citizen’ and they take that responsibility very seriously.
One of the incredible stories that comes out of Apolis’ work is how their leather sandals are made and sold. The shoes are made by a family shoemaking business in Palestine and sold by a distributor in Israel – the two businesses work together very closely but have never had a chance to meet.
Watch how Skype enables these collaborators to work together – and be inspired yourself.
