Live Like You

In these times where everyday life has come to a halt: What gives us the power to move on? It's simple: It's that we stand with each other. Think of each other. Support each other.  Care for each other - despite differences. And even though we are socially distanced. No one should feel alone. Because that's how we'll finally get through these times:  By going through them together.
We are happy to reveal the hero film of the Skoda Octavia Campaign, directed by our wonderful Dorian & Daniel and co-created with Optimist and Thjnk. The campaign inspires us to pursue our passions and know what it means to Live Like You.  Horizont and LBB report.
