Kyiv Democracy Hub
Establishing a Democracy Hub in Kyiv as a space to promote democracy amongst Ukrainian youth and to inspire the future leaders of the country.
The main purpose of the project is to establish a Democracy Hub in Kyiv as a space to promote democracy amongst Ukrainian youth and to inspire the future leaders of the country. The Hub aims to improve youth interests in society, politics, democracy, independent media, human rights, ecology, and to enhance youth leadership and active citizenship.
The project is motivated by the learning goals of the Danish public-school reform: ’Folkeskole skal udfordre alle elever, så de bliver så dygtige, de kan’’ – ”The public school must challenge all students so that they become as skilled as they can ”.
The initiative of Kyiv Democracy Hub comes from an increasing need for active youth participation in solving societal challenges in Ukraine. In this project, with our partners, Klitschko Foundation, We seek to encourage the creation of space for dialogue, to build the capacity of youth to take positive actions, and to raise awareness on current local and global issues. We aim to empower youth and provide them the necessary set of knowledge, skills, and competencies.
The activities such as youth training, debate clubs, great debate camp, panel discussions, lectures, seminars, community cafes, will contribute to the empowerment of youth in Ukraine, so they become a change-maker in their community, striving for a better life and applying democracy and active citizenship in the daily lives. Through these specific project activities, we are establishing a framework that will result in positive changes in their local communities.
