As soon as the invitation to the CLE was published our assumption that the topic will be of interest to our peers of the NGO Academy was confirmed. The slots were filled in the first few hours. Representatives of NGOs from Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Hungary, Moldova and Austria working in the fields of social work, education, health, advocacy, gender equality, LGBTIQ+, human rights, youth work, child protection, culture and capacity building have travelled to Ljubljana to attend the event that took place in Ljubljana on June 16th.
The event was structured around three parts. In the morning, we started by busting some of the most common myths about burnout in organizational context, we have discussed how to recognize it and how we can address it not only on individual but also on organizational level. Participants were introduced some tools but have also shared some of the practices they have developed in their own organizations and might be useful for their peers. We even got creative and made some reminders in form of a self-care bank to take home.
