January for ЗМІN


7 min

31 January 2024

Traditionally, on the last day of the month, we share the results, present the ЗMIN’s involvement in the partnership network and define further plans.


Meeting of gratefulness
At the end of the year, there was a meeting with the ЗMIN partner network, that inspired and helped us tune up for building up this year's plans and strategies. The highlights of the meeting were a reflection by the ЗMIN team, a lecture by psychotherapist Volodymyr Stanchyshyn, and communication between ЗMIN partners.
Volodia told us about emotional swings and indicated our uncertainty from realizing the reality of the war since 2014 until today. It is notable he highlighted our need to unite into communities, communicate and share our feelings, emotions, and states.

Bohdan Yemets documented our meeting with partners as evidence of the positive interaction dynamics.
During the meeting, the ЗMIN team shared their reflections on the year and brief summaries in numbers.
