The IYMC team - WE - work every day with very complicated issues, requiring responsibility for words, sensitivity, and empathy. It does not matter what our job is - each of us takes seriously the mission of our Centre and its place in its implementation. Although there is a smile on our face - every day we are serious and we believe that this is how we do our work.
