How can you communicate about the situation in your homeland? And in which ways can you help make a change? These are some of the questions that will be discussed on the upcoming seminar “Empowering Tomorrow”.

What do you achieve by participating?

  • An opportunity to learn from experts and peers about the principles and practices of democracy and freedom of speech.
  • The chance to share your experiences and chal- lenges living abroad with fellow young Ukrainians staying in different Scandinavian regions.
  • Expand your network of peers in the Scandinavian countries and explore ways to collaborate and amplify your voices in the public sphere.

We have the utmost honor of working together with some of the biggest Nordic and Ukrainian organizations such as the Ukrainian Danish Youth House, Nordic Ukraine Forum, Ukraine House and Building Ukraine Together who will participate in the seminar and facilitate various workshops, talks and social events. We look forward to seeing you at the seminar and hearing your perspectives on how to empower the youth and foster democracy and freedom of speech in Ukraine and beyond.
