Evey two years!
Every two years we strive to evolve!
In 2019, we aimed "oasis", and in 2021, we moved "towards hope". Now, in 2023, we are trying to look differently. Look differently to where diversity comes from, to different thoughts. This way, we suppose to embrace peace and creativity coming from the very precious blessing of being different from one another. If we do so; Galilei would not have been blamed for his idea, or maybe no one gets killed beacause of their beliefs.
Therefore, we focus on "dimension".
On different dimensions, and then the world becomes a better place!
