CHALLENGE ACADEMY

An international educational project for young people from Ukraine and Germany who want to learn how to effectively deal with challenges, become environmentally conscious, and develop their leadership skills.

Context

Adolescents all over the world are different due to their unique traditions and mentality. However, the challenges they face, as well as the issues that concern them, are certainly similar. Acquaintance with the values ​​of peers from other countries can push them to change in their own lives and the lives of the community. This is what prompted us, together with the German foundation DFB-Stiftung Egidius Braun, to gather for a 6-day intensive creative and motivated teenagers who dream globally and are ready to act locally.
