After the Maidan: Youth work & inclusion reality in Ukraine

Study Visit

21-26 May 2016 | Kyiv - Vinnitsa - Lviv, Ukraine

Aim of this study visit is to present experience of Ukrainian organisations in the sphere of inclusion. It will be an opportunity to understand better reality of youth work in Ukraine and to create partnerships for future cooperation.
Ukraine is a country that nowadays is undergoing difficult times: Maidan revolution brought political and economical turbulences, conflict with Russia over Crimea and its eastern territories lead to a permanent crisis. However these circumstances also lead to birth of self-consciousness of the nation and unprecedented civic activity and solidarity. We would like to give a chance to youth workers from Programme Countries and officers of National Agencies to explore the world of Ukrainian youth work, hoping that this experience will lead to better understanding of the reality in the country, breaking down stereotypes and will encourage to cooperation with local organisations. The topic of the study visit is INCLUSION: we will be meeting organisations working with youth facing various kinds of obstacles. A special focus will be put on internally displaced persons (IDPs) – right now over 1,3 million of former residents of Crimea and Donbas region are living outside of their homes and many organisations are dealing with this specific target group. During the event we will visit three beautiful cities of Ukraine: Kyiv, Vinnitsa and Lviv . Comment regarding the safety: study visit will take be organized in central and western part of the country, in safe regions, over 700 km west from the conflict areas.
