ImpactFest was an experience that healed me spiritually, alongside meeting wonderful people and acquiring great ideas. I left there by setting new goals in my career path and clarifying the answers to the questions waiting in my mind.
The fact that the participants of the program were inspired by common issues formed the basis for us to become a community from the first day. It was very valuable to exchange ideas with this diverse group, which consisted of different ages and fields.
Here, I witnessed the magic of ''circles'' again. I felt safe and was able to comfortably share my feelings and thoughts in the face of the problems experienced in the world and in our country. I left the camp with my hope that we can change something together, taking root and growing.
ImpactFest was a unique gathering where we gained different perspectives on problems and collaborated to create new spheres of influence. We took the first steps of our sustainability project of our company here. Arkhé Campus is an unmatched space to start new projects!
