After the programme, I try to keep the concept in mind how we could work with innovation more in the public sector. Maybe my office can set an example. The programme gave me inspiration and also motivation to think more about these things. But also, a broader knowledge about what sustainability actually is and how I can be a part of it. It is more than green thinking.
The Academy helped me understand how a human rights-based approach might make our projects more beneficial to the people we try to help. This is where the programme filled my knowledge gaps the most. It’s a new perspective for public health workers in Armenia.
