The Education Festival within the Urban X-Сhange project is took place in Celle, in 1st and 2nd of July. During two intensive days participants exchanged ideas about further directions of humanitarian aid for Sumy in Ukraine, types of help, and how we may cooperate further. There were lectures, workshops, discussions organized by our German partners from Celle (brother city of Sumy).
The new Urban X-Change Network is an international project for cities and adult education institutions in Germany, Great Britain, Ukraine and the USA that want to promote and strengthen the active participation of their civil society in innovative projects within the framework of a city partnership.
The project offers cities and their adult education institutions as well as their civil society from Great Britain, Ukraine and the USA the opportunity to carry out joint activities with their German counterparts.The binational partnership works on cultural and educational topics relevant to foreign policy, such as local sustainability agendas, citizen participation, cultural or remembrance work.
Grateful to DVV International in Ukraine for funding this project and supporting our team of enthusiasts. This project is supported by Sumy City Council.
