Theme: Eunoia - Beautiful Thinking

This event occurred on
February 22, 2020
New Cairo, Al Qāhirah

Eunoia is the beauty found in one’s thinking, that goes on behind the curtains of exteriors. It's an intangible thing but you can still feel its shine.

We’re sending the message that pure and true beauty in fact, lies in one's mind and not in outer appearance.

"A treasure's worth is valued by what's inside not what's outside".

Being one of the most remarkable words EUNOIA inspires us to get up, widen our horizon and see a vision of a local platform that can motivate people and share talks that activate purpose and create persistence to achieve goals by establishing an organisation that continues to work hard to share ideas that are worth spreading.
