“I got to know many Novas that I hadn’t met before, from different countries and backgrounds with whom I had conversations I don’t normally have in my daily life”
Martha Bjarnar Gjermo
“The building of trust so quickly between all these people and the feeling of “we” that sort of just happened instantly almost once we got here”
Marta Fernández Puertas
“Life is made out of experiences, and this was one of those you take with you for the rest of your days”
Samira Rahman
“I’ve met people that have given me different opportunities and challenged my ideas. Without Nova and events like this one I would probably not be where I am today”.
Matteo Gambino
“A heterogeneous group in terms of background but with the same passion and curiosity. It was one of the most unbelievable experiences I had in my life”

From Self-Discovery to Global Impact

A weekend event where selected attendees go through a unique development path and make deep connections. Participants start focusing on themselves before gradually expanding to the people around them and ultimately, society at large.


Empowerment is the spark that ignites our potential and fuels our growth. It's breaking down barriers and discovering our strengths, like Tomas did in 2022


Transformation is the catalyst that leads us to a brighter future. As Samira in the 2015 edition, it's breaking free from limiting beliefs


An inspiring experience unlocks creativity, and elevates your sense of purpose. For Matteo in 2022, it was one of the most unbelievable experiences
