It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all back to NATIV. Sometimes you don’t realize just what you’ve got until it’s gone, and this is so true with NATIV. I have worked in the media industry for nearly 20 years and I’m so delighted to be back in the hot seat bringing you our fantastic first issue of the summer. My team are also overjoyed to be back together – we’ve all missed the buzz of magazine life.
I would like to say a massive thank you to all of the businesses and brands who have returned to support NATIV. It has been overwhelming to feel the love again. When I last spoke to you in 2019 I stressed how important it was to protect our precious and fragile world. Two years of pandemic have reinforced this even more. In this issue we explain that the Future Is Now – the time for action has arrived! And nowhere is this more relevant than in Ibiza, which is suddenly at the top of everyone’s wish list of where to live and work. The island has become a hub for everyone: I’ve seen so many new faces arrive in the last couple of years and so many new businesses open – Ibiza is now the envy of the world. Please turn to page 122 to read NATIV editorial director Ben Raworth’s eye-opening feature on why there really is no time to waste.
NATIV continues to grow. We have so many exciting events and projects to tell you about very soon. We are also proud to launch our brand new website, www.nativibiza.com, furthering our promise to be closer to you all year round by bringing you all the essential Ibiza and Formentera news.
But I cannot conclude my letter without thanking EVERYONE who worked tirelessly during the pandemic to ensure our lives were as easy and stress free as possible. It was the worst of times for many and our workforces went way beyond what was expected of them. So thank you from everyone living here in Ibiza – you should all be so proud of yourselves.
You are all our superheroes. Enjoy the issue. Love always… #soynativ #Iamnativ #Sócnatiu
