Together We Can!

Project description

"Together we can!" aims to promote democratic and human rights values in Ukrainian civil society. The project builds on best practices of all partners and brings them together in a training programme that enables active young people to become role models and peer multipliers in their regions. They acquire online and offline skills for democratic participation and advocacy for civil society actors.

Permanent structures of cooperation are formed through a combination of training, roundtables and awareness raising events as well as offers online. Strengthening active young people who work locally for democracy and human rights creates sustainable structures that anchor values of pluralism, human rights and open dialogue in society. This increases the visibility of civil society actors both in Ukraine and in Europe as a whole. With 'Together we can!' young people are given the opportunity to develop their skills, make contacts and develop their own projects. Furthermore, the project addresses both different local conditions and the need for cross-cutting networking through social media channels. With the combination of on- and offline strategies, networks created during the project as well as professional and methodological results can outlast the duration of the project. With a blog cafe method developed within the project, young activists will be able to exchange information with each other even beyond the duration of the project and draw the attention of a broad public to their concerns. Together we can!' trains young people in the field of democracy promotion and thus focuses on the future design of social interaction in Ukraine.
