If there was any year in recent history where the importance of resilience was underlined, it was 2021. On a global scale! The COVID-19 pandemic continued to take its toll and surprised us time and again with its twists and turns as well as its secondary effects on society. Existing societal cracks became deeper and wider, and new ones emerged, resulting in sharper divisions and growing imbalances. Its impact could be felt in many public sectors, communities, and our lives. The degree of severity varied and was dependent on a person’s social status and where they lived. It became abundantly clear across the world: self-esteem and resilience are essential for maintaining hope and perspective in difficult times. And they are also the core elements of our interventions.
