"How to Co-create with Nature" at the Munich Creative Business Week

“How to co-create with nature”. HML’s European Bureau is exhibiting and speaking at Munich Creative Business Week 2024!

Exploring how we co-create with nature aligns perfectly with HML’s initiatives in the EU and US to foster creating healthy spaces for people and the planet. Spanning from May 11 to May 19, the event features nine days of virtual and in-person activities, and we are pleased to participate in it this year. If you happen to be in Munich, we’ll be showcasing products from our EU-based materials library on Friday May 17, providing an opportunity for you to interact with building products available in the EU market. 

We welcome our European colleagues to join us online in these free online lectures:
