One of Banyan Workspace’s core principles is the belief that we all have a responsibility to give back to society. After a year spent witnessing rampant job losses and social trauma, we are therefore thrilled to kickstart 2021 by launching our new partnership with Time Auction, an innovative young NGO that helps boost charitable volunteerism while simultaneously helping young people find their feet on the path to future business success.

This year, it feels more important than ever to make Christmas sustainable, in every sense of the word, by creating festive rituals that can delight your family for years to come.
