The Middle East and North Africa Salam Fellowship
Tunisia, 27 - 31 March 2017
We live in the age of distraction, and to be a successful entrepreneur requires razor sharp focus. Our minds are our most precious resource; they are the source of happiness or depression, creativity or self-destruction, problem-solving or problem-making. It seems strange that we hardly take the time to care for what is our greatest asset. Our attention is distracted by technology, our surroundings and our work. Then there are moments when we’re consumed by overwhelming stresses or challenge of having to do things outside our skill set. Adding mindfulness techniques into the workday can provide an immediate release of the pressure valve of stress, diminish distractions and allow us to do better work.
Over the last decades, innovation and creativity have become critical skills for achieving success. The need for creative problem solving has arisen as more and more management problems require creative insights in order to find suitable impactful solutions as well as providing support through networking and living together. Peace Revolution would like to introduce its 4th MENA Salam Fellowship. This year, the Fellowship will focus on Young Entrepreneurs from the MENA region.
Peace Revolution’s MENA Salam Fellowship will bring together 30 young entrepreneurs from the MENA region on a 5-day inner peace journey in Tunisia while living in an inspiring calm nature.
Are you a young entrepreneur striving to create a better world through your impact?Join the 4th MENA Salam Fellowship where you will learn how to turn your failures into successes and how to eliminate the excess baggage in your life. We can then move forward together and work towards empowering ourselves, our circles, our region and all around the world. Let’s start the change!
This is your opportunity to join Peace Revolution, so that you can start connecting to your inner true self and create the potential for social transformation around you! Assemble with the creative powers of youth! Join us in Tunisia, 27-31 March 2017.
