2020 to 2021: Year of Challenges and Transformation

2020 will be remembered as a bad year, changing our lives and the way we communicate and interact in society. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic will be a topic to talk about for a long time, the deferred or cancelled projects, the long nights of health personnel, and the irreparable losses for many families, but also, people will remember solidarity, resistance and innovation.

Even in dark times, colourful stories can be told, experiences that bring humanity back to us, examples of survival and evolution, because there is nothing more constant than change and how we adapt to it.

With positivism, we bid goodbye to hard-hitting 2020 and looking forward to 2021 as an opportunity for overcoming the loss and for growth and development.
