The War from Inside and Outside

6 February 2023
15:00 - 16:00 CET

Almost a year ago, in February 2022 russia started its full-scale invasion in Ukraine. Those 12 past months changed a lot in the world and we are all impacted by the war in this or that way, both as people and interculturalists.

As we know, this is not a war for territories but a war of values. Fortunately, European values have been proving to win. Due to the war more than 10 million Ukrainians became refugees or people temporarily hosted in other countries. All of a sudden, we faced the reality of living closer together. What do we learn from each other? What is useful and what doesn’t work? What are our personal and professional experiences of the war and how they can be helpful?
