This mentoring year is going to its end and so is one semester too.
Now we are hoping for the best for next semester – a new Nightingale year without the Covid.
It is however always interesting to look both back and forward and think about of the Covid years we have gone through with surprisingly good results. But I am also thinking of all the years our Nightingale has been running. In Malmö we now celebrate our 25th anniversary!
Over the years we all have contribute to:
*inclusion and widening participation in education
*students and children’s development and learning
*a better integration in our cities
One of the Global goals in Agenda 2030 is: Leave No One Behind. Nightingale and mentoring is one good example of this – we try not to leave anybody behind but instead include them. We don´t want any children to be left behind. We want to strengthen their self-confidence and develop a better self-esteem – to develop their potentials.
Those who otherwise would not met now meet. It is a mutual exchange and learning and development for both mentors and children (and for others too)
Mentors’ engagement is also good for the society – they are doing a humanistic effort. Through mentoring the society gets individuals who are engaged not only here and now. Their engagement will increase for social questions and social justice also in the future, isn´t it amazing! ( Stukas A, Snyder M and Gil E. (1999) The effect of Madatory intention to volunteer. )
Next Nightingale Conference.
Unfortunately The Nightingale Berlin will take a pause. That means next Conference can not be held in Berlin. Any wishes or ideas?
