UPDATE

SensAbility 2020 is Cancelled
Tickets Will be Refunded

Due to a recently identified case of COVID-19 within the WHU community, we have decided with a heavy heart that SensAbility 2020 will not be taking place. The development of COVID-19 is beyond our control and hence represents a significant uncertainty. We see it as our responsibility to ensure the safety of our participants and therefore believe that this is the right measure to take.
This decision has been made in close consultation with WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management and following the recommendations of the Mayen Koblenz Health Authority.
The collaboration with our partners and participants has been a truly fantastic experience, and we are very proud of what we have achieved as a team.

We want to thank everyone who has supported our initiative and contributed to promoting our collective vision of making this world a better place. We now want to focus on the future, and we are already looking forward to welcoming you at SensAbility 2021.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Patagonia is an outdoor apparelcompany, which is recognized internationally for its environmental activism anddonates 1% of sales annually to environmental organizations.
