With IKEA Festival, organizers hope to encourage discussions about sustainability and global community.

"Life at home has taken on a whole new meaning for every one of us over the past year, and by being virtually connected, we can open the door to many more lives around the world – exploring how we all live, celebrating individuality and creativity," said Olivia Ross Wilson, the Communications Director of Ingka Group, which controls hundreds of IKEA stores around the world. "Our first IKEA Festival will be our biggest global home tour yet and will bring people together around life at home in a new way, both online and in our stores, and will be the beginning of a longer-term movement of real homes and real lives."
