Sooo. Magazine & Events
Founded in Norway
is a Global digital media
that brings awareness and impact
on topics related to sustainability.
Sooo. The journey began as a conversation between Siv and Teddy and so they discovered that they have a shared vision to support the process of creating a better world. Realizing how aligned they were that the world had reached a point where action was needed, they began to discuss the possibility of uniting their powers and skills to make an impact. Their vision was to raise awareness, educate and inspire others to find solutions and take action on important topics related to sustainability.
So that’s how the concept of a digital magazine about sustainability called Sooo was born. Siv was already a founder of a creative agency that set the foundations for the magazine. With a background in building networks and creating opportunities and strategies, Teddy brought the rest. The idea for the name came from Siv who had the vision of Sooo as a word that always comes up when you present a solution or a question.
As we work on our digital magazine, we are looking for other ways to share news and stories such as podcasts, videos, animation, and visual storytelling in addition to written articles.
Today Sooo. is proud of its outstanding team of ambassadors, contributors, and friends from around the world. With expertise in content creation, writing, design, leadership, branding, and PR, all united by the vision for creating a better world, they have a key role in developing the magazine and creating an impact.
Sooo. what's next? Launch of a Live interview/Podcast, the official launch of the Sooo. Magazine and building a community are some of the things that Siv and Teddy are planning for the near future.
Do you have any ideas or feedback, or do you want to be part of this incredible journey? Are you passionate about making an impact for a better future? Please get in touch!

Reasearcher & Develompent
Master's degree in Mathematics from UiT (Tartu University), Diploma in Tourism Management, Clinical Hypnotherapist from Robert Shields College in the UK, and a medical foundation course.
I have lived and worked in different countries: Estonia, Denmark, the UK, Greece, and Norway.
I have a burning passion for understanding the complex interactions within the human body and how various factors, including lifestyle, nutrition, and the environment, influence our health.
Through several years of experience, I have come to understand that our well-being is entirely dependent on a healthy and balanced environment, including clean water and oceans. It is crucial to raise awareness about water, the oceans, and environmental protection, and to highlight how critical these issues are for our own health and the future of our planet.
My desire is to inspire and raise awareness among people about the importance of taking care of our oceans and water resources, and how even small actions can make a significant difference.
