Active Citizens Сamp online: sustainable development of communities
Active Citizens Camp is a platform for youth leaders.
During the camp you will learn about successful sustainable social initiatives, exchange experiences with more than 40 activists, and apply your leadership skills in practice: organising a team-based project for your community. We will be there to help with the planning and to provide advice about communications, fundraising, PR and more.
- Facilitated sessions based on the Active Citizens methodology. You will become more self-aware, develop your dialogue skills, and learn how to plan and deliver a social action project.
- Funding, a team and mentoring to help carry out a social initiative. You will have up to UAH 10,000, a team of other camp participants, and the support of experts in project management.
- Online sessions with opinion leaders from Ukraine, the EU and the UK. Listen to their success stories and ask all the questions you have.
- Contact with more than 40 youth leaders from all over Ukraine. For informal communication, connect to networking meet-ups in the evening.
- Hands-on homework and small prizes for the completion of that.
- An Active Citizens certificate you can put on your resume and share with friends via social media.
