During the event, participants have shared their experience of adapting to new world conditions and talked about the necessary changes in the times of new normal. In addition, an expert in the field is assigned to each block.

Zagoriy Foundation team is delighted to join such an important discussion today.

«This year, our foundation became a member of EFC, and the conference was a great opportunity to integrate into the community of European foundations. We see that the challenges and problems we have are common with foundations in the EU. Therefore, European colleagues can learn a lot from Ukrainian organizations in many respects. We strive to share experiences and bring the best international practices to Ukraine, but on the contrary, we sincerely want Ukraine to be recognized as well», – said Oleksandra Lytvynenko, Head of Partnerships and Development at Zagoriy Foundation.
