We stand in solidarity with all the brave people of #ukraine, all friends and colleagues we have been working with throughout the years. As civic educators, we remain committed to the truth and to helping others gain the skills to differ right from wrong.
There are many ways through which one can support Ukraine and its people in these challenging times. We started with a series of online conversations, War and Education, as part of our Disruptions programme. DISRUPTIONS is the area of our work dedicated to those events that have a profound impact on civic education. It is also about providing safe spaces – on- and offline – where members of the community can come together to discuss and jointly act upon them. If you want to know more about past and upcoming online conversations, please, visit the War and Education page.
Others in civil society are organizing numerous initiatives to support Ukrainian people, from collecting and coordinating financial support, donations of essentials, accommodation, through publishing up-to-date information about the war. Below you can find some of the ongoing initiatives in support of Ukraine. If you would like to share with us an ongoing initiative in support of Ukraine, please, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
