Nobody could have anticipated a year like this. How quickly a situation can change and in what dimensions it can affect a person’s life. So we all became spectators and protagonists of the same event simultaneously, and so we became aware once again: “How small the world has become”.

For me, 2020 has marked by three words: reflect, learn and do.


From a crisis can come new opportunities that can make our lives more meaningful and happier.


We are in a time, where we need to simultaneously shift between master to apprentice and influencer to a follower to be more effective in this complex world. Thus, we sufficient generosity “to share knowledge and experiences” and sufficient humility “to be able to learn from others”.


Our work, international cooperations and training will continue to develop after Corona: more individualised, addressing diverse groups and located in different contexts (F2F, abroad or online, respectively). So that we now have to do something to make them more fair, sustainable and participatory.

A good and healthy 2021.
