Even though it is still cold outside, the spring winds give us hope that spring will come soon. We also hope the research carried out by scientists will contribute to the well-being of society. The question of health care is still relevant, and will continue to be relevant in the future. This journal has three articles on this topic, ranging from the organisation of the food system (Atkočiūnienė, Žyvatauskaitė), and self-assessment of the health system (Sloka, Čipane, Vasina, Volgasts), to the participation by health-care employees in processes of change (Župerkienė, Tuminienė, Župerka). Innovation is not neglected, starting with the application of innovative technologies in Ukraine (Tyukhtenko, Makarenko, Savina, Oliinyk, Oleksenko, Rybachok), and going on to the concept of creativity (Ganusauskaitė, Vveinhardt, Didžgalvytė-Bujauskė), and the application of innovation in education in Latvia (Štefenberga, Sloka). A couple of articles reflect more global issues, such as the causes and consequences of migration (Karaša, Čiegis), and the role of law in global politics (Obrikienė). Clearly, global politics would be much simpler if people followed ethical standards. Research on the use of codes of ethics (Ramašauskienė) and ethical leadership in organisations (Petrulis, Šimanskienė, Burgis, Paužuolienė) is discussed in two more articles. Understanding the need for communication, both at the organisational and the state level, is only possible with a knowledge of the target audience. Therefore, we invite you to familiarise yourself with youth-related issues from Sweden, the Russian Federation, Lithuania and Poland (Strakšienė, Batuchina), and internal communication research within the organisation (Pikturnaitė, Paužuolienė). Enjoy your spring reading.
