My name is Ilona Olehlova. I am a trainer & project consultant. I work across sectors (non-profit, youth, cultural). I work and live in a multilingual & multicultural environment. I prepare and deliver workshops, training courses. I organize cultural events.
Until 2020, the year of COVID-19, I spent most of my time moving. I was delivering trainings, workshops around Europe. I had the opportunity to learn from the best practices of other countries e.g. Costa Rica. Now I I work online and offline. Working offline gives me an opportunity to connect with the communit(ies) in which I am living. Working online gives me space to travel between my two homes in the Czech Republic and North Macedonia.
During the day I switch from Czech to English and Macedonian.
I work on project applications. I work with individuals, organizations, I work together with the publishing house of children books. I dig in the community garden.
I am co-author of 'Creative Learning Cookbook' . Creative writing is one my key tools.
I am co-funder of small Czech non-profit organization 'Mission: Reconnect, z.s.'.
I believe in the importance of the community, especially, in the times of opinion bubbles and online dis/connection.
I spent one year in Pristina, Kosovo as UN volunteer in UNFPA.
I was EVS (European Voluntary Service) volunteer in Skopje, North Macedonia. I wrote articles and work together with people coming from different ethnical and religious backgrounds.
