During the week, Syrian leaders, for the 1st time, engaged in #MeWe exercises on breathing, goal-setting, trauma-healing, communications,  perspective taking, and leadership development. #MeWe led the sessions with experts Michael Niconchuk from Beyond Conflict, and Justine Hardy, for Healing Kashmir.

At the end of the intensive training, #MeWeSyria co-led a storytelling event with the Syrian participants. The event was meant for Germans in the community to engage with refugees through communications and the arts. This was the first time Syrian participants at the Migration Hub space led and organized such a public event. For many of the participants, the week’s #MeWeSyria trainings enabled Syrian participants to open up and communicate their stories, challenge,s goals, and emotions for the 1st time.
