NGO “Youth Organisation “STAN” and UNP WG4 members launched the initiative “Youth Voices of Ukraine on Post-War Reconstruction” within the project ” Supporting the activities of the UNP EaP CSF 2021-2023″ implemented by the Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting with the financial support of the European Union.

Name of the Initiative: Youth Voices of Ukraine on Post-War Development

Organisation: NGO “Youth Organisation “STAN”, UNP WG4 members

Duration: July – September 2023

The Initiative aims to strengthen the voices of youth activists on the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine and the reforming and restoration of the social and humanitarian sphere in the perspective of 2030.

The target group of the project are young activists united by the values of democracy and respect for diversity within the framework of the Young Diversity Ambassadors program, implemented by NGO “STAN” in partnership with the “Action Aid” alliance for rights, equality and international solidarity, with the support of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), the Global Fund for Children (USA) and Terre Des Hommes (Germany).

Activists from the Young Diversity Ambassadors program have launched a qualitative research and advocacy campaign to amplify the voices of active young people in rebuilding and developing democracy. As part of the Initiative, a qualitative study will be conducted with the participation of 20 youth activists from 8 regions of Ukraine through 10-16 semi-structured interviews and 2-4 group discussions in the format of a youth dialogue. The methodology will be based on the ideas of Timothy Snyder as expressed in his book “The Road to Unfreedom”. The subject of the study is the youth’s vision of the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine and the strengthening of democracy in the EU and the world. The target group of the study are youth activists working in children’s and youth spaces, collective centres for internally displaced persons and/or implementing grassroots social initiatives in communities.

The study will be used to produce an analytical report highlighting the views of activists working with the most vulnerable IDPs and other war-affected population groups. The report will focus on the reform and reconstruction of the social and humanitarian sector until 2030. The document will be disseminated online to experts from relevant ministries, local councils, international and local humanitarian organisations.
