Laika is an innovative media company devoted to pursuing stories about development, progress and possibilities. Stories with a high importance to society that stimulate you to look further and nurture your imagination – with hopeful ideas, fresh alternatives and challenging perspectives. We rather portray heroes instead of telling victim narratives.
