For many people fall is a start of a new page in life. Many of us measure our year not from January to January, but from September 1 to September 1, a habit we earned from our school and student years.
The Day of Knowledge, Teacher’s Day, Inventor’s Day, and, after all, Nobel Week, during which the winners are announced, are all important dates of autumn calendar.
The 14th Route No. 1 of Den will come of presses in October, the month which starts under the sign of honoring the teacher. And we wanted to expand this topic: from school teacher to life mentor, from knowledge we learn at a school desk to the ability to learn something new every day and feel delighted about this.
“The new issue of Route No. 1 is about the joy of learning, the importance of people called guru in the world, and who considers whom a guru,” Den/The Day’s Editor-in-Chief Larysa Ivshyna announces the topic of the new glossy supplement.
Incidentally, Route No. 1 starts with Ivshyna’s “School Sketch.” “We may forget some formulas, which have long ago melted to produce a different quality, but this warmth, cordiality, and care – this gold capital – is something we will never forget,” Larysa Ivshyna reflects in her column.
Singer Jamala and Olympic Champion Hanna Bezsonova also shared memories about their teachers. And young businessman Yevhen Chernetsky told about his mentors in business and value of European diploma in Ukraine.
In traditional column of Route No. 1, whose heroes are foreign diplomats, you will learn about peculiarities of education in the US, Mexico, and Switzerland, and also find out whom the ambassadors of these countries to Ukraine consider to be their gurus.
An interview with the daughter of an outstanding Ukrainian pedagogue Vasyl Sukhomlynsky is the exclusive material of the 14th Route No. 1. Olha Sukhomlynska tells about her father’s character and sense of humor and shares her memories about their family travels and tireless work of the “pedagogue of the heart.”
P.S. The new issue of Route No. 1 will be published on the day when the Den’s 15th International Photo Exhibit will be launched. And there is some symbolism about it. Experts and readers of Den/The Day emphasize: this publication does have a photo school of its own. Visual philosophy: a photo is not just an illustration, and a photographer is not just the one who presses the button, but also a person who understands and knows his country. This is a photo trend of Den/The Day, a bright phenomenon in present-day Ukrainian journalism.
