THIS YEARʼS THEME - “Breaking Out of the Bubble”

Living in bubble is a natural state of affairs for human beings. People seek out similarities in their groups and tendency, people live in their own little insulate world.

This time we decided to pay attention on what is going on around and not to be naive to what is happening in the outside world. It is time to step out of the comfort zone and think more out of the box. Think new ideas, new mindset, and change for the better.

It's all about that change which starts with you!!!! - Breaking Out from the Bubble.
