Aspects of language, religion, calligraphy, fashion and design, spices and trade are placed in an astonishing and reviving context, thus raising awareness of close links that one might have forgotten in the passage of time.

Although it was not apparent from the resident’s point of view, Qatar was affected economically. This could have an impact on the journey towards Qatar National Vision 2030.

The goal of Inspired by Qatar is to:

- Enlighten the youth about Qatar’s National Vision 2030 and its significance.

- Stimulate them to contribute towards its achievement.

- Help them realize how it’s a win for them.

- Teach them the concept of synergy.
