GCO launches seventh edition of Q Life Magazine

19 January 2020

The Government Communications Office (GCO) has today launched the seventh edition of Q Life Magazine. Titled Qataris Abroad, this edition celebrates Qatar’s growing role on the global stage – from the fields of arts and fashion to sports and diplomacy.

The latest Q Life Magazine showcases the impact Qatar is making beyond its borders, sharing inspiring stories of people working to create change on an international scale.

Over the years, Qatar has become increasingly influential in the global sphere. In 2019, Qatar hosted the World Athletics Championships, the Arabian Gulf Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019, positioning itself as a sporting hub – regionally and globally. Qatar has also significantly increased its impact in the philanthropic and diplomatic realms, boosting its global commitments to support those in need. It is the determination and dedication of Qataris abroad that have made these aspirations become a reality.

Q Life Magazine issue 7 features an interview with Her Excellency Sheikha Alya bint Ahmed Al Thani, the Permanent Representative of Qatar to the UN and celebrates Olympic athlete Mutaz Barshim who won gold at the recent World Athletics Championships in Doha.

The magazine highlights the potential of those in Qatar, and how small changes can inspire a movement globally. Charities, such as ‘Box of Happiness’, are impressive reminders of our commitment at home and abroad.

Q Life Magazine can be read online on QLife.com – the GCO’s website dedicated to sharing the successes of innovators, entrepreneurs, and trailblazers in Qatar with the world. There, you will also find video interviews with many of the contributors, bringing their ambitions to life and sharing what can’t be captured in words alone.

We invite you to explore the inspiring stories of eco-activist Neeshad Shafi, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications for Qatar Airways Salam Shawa, adventurer and record-breaker Fahad Badar and many others on Q Life’s website and Instagram page.
