Democracy Hubs Ukraine

This initiative was supported by The New Democracy Fund through the New Cooperation Fund.

About the project

The main purpose of the project is to contribute to providing Ukrainian youth with a platform for peaceful and active participation in the democratic development of the country. The Hubs will serve as dynamic focus platform, where youth can meet and engage in public affairs by learning and debating current youth-related issues in stimulating spaces for democratic education among youth, and inspire the present and future youth leaders of the country to be an active part of solving current societal challenges.


In short, the Hubs aim at increasing youth interests in society, politics, democracy, independent media, human rights, environment, and to enhance youth leadership and active citizenship. The core project activities for the youth include training courses, dialogue cafés, seminars, workshops, online courses, regional debate camps, a national debate camp, and a panel debate trip to Denmark.
