MENA Meetups

The monthly meetups bring together folks from the MENA region to share, connect, seek help, and release stress by celebrating each other. In addition, it's a time for us to find ways to support each other, and help us understand what is happening in our part of the world. If you cannot attend the monthly meetups, we are taking notes of each gathering and linking to them below.

The MENA community is connected during the week in different ways. Either through various MENA-focused channels on the IFF Mattermost or via different events organized on various topics during the year.

Notes

This MENA Monthly Meetup was used for discussing the Community Values of these gatherings.

لا هزيمة او فشل هي نهاية العالم.. يمكنك دائما البدء من جديد و يمكن للفشل ان يكون بداية لنجاح جديد

 لا تحترقي. الاهتمام بالنفس لنتمكن من مساعدة الآخر أحيانا.. الأنانية مفيدة

Community values are important as they works like abiding law that will make everyone more comfortable. It's important to have it written so everyone is clear on it.

IFF code of conduct can be a good reference, as the main aspect of it is RESPECT. Maybe we need to do some adaptations for online events.
