K2K's 2023 Collection is called 'WORLD WARS - IN THE TIME OF SALOME'. This theme is being interpreted as war in a time of peace. Interestingly, war comes in many different forms. It can be physical, emotional, or psychological. K2K attempts to showcase all three facets of war by using various mediums throughout the debut of its 2023 Collection. In terms of the aSTORIES platform, K2K has introduced the story of Agate to bring awareness to the Climate War
As the wheels of time turn, the transition towards a sustainable environment is of utmost importance. The world is at a critical crossroad with growing concerns around the climate crisis taking center stage. Thus, to keep the wheels of time rotating into perpetuity, a well-oiled motor, primed on ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) fundamentals are paramount to ensure a sustainable future
The story of Agate is inspired by the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is grounded in “the UN’s 17 SDG interlinked global goals, which are designed to be a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future". With that said, we seek to educate readers on the topic of ESG by interweaving this framework into our fantasy narrative. We hope that you enjoy!

STANDARDS & POLICIES OF CONTROL
The plant of Agate is governed by a diverse confederation, each lobbying for the mission of peace. The diversity of the governing body (UCOP) relates to the 'G' in ESG, as it speaks to diversified thought-leadership and equitable practices to prevent bribery and corruption
