Young Ukrainians have expressed interest in learning opportunities on the VUM online platform. We discussed the importance of the civic competence development. Everyone could immediately find us online and make sure that everything is working smoothly.

We are happy to see very active young people who are interested in new knowledge opportunities. We believe in the younger generation of Ukrainians! They are all very different, looking for themselves, open to new things. And what is more important, some of them ask themselves: “What can I do to make positive changes in Ukraine?”

Good luck to you, young Ukrainians!
