Youth Leader Exchange Program

Do you want to be part of our Youth Leader Exchange Program and get inspiration and new tools for how to create better, more democratic societies?

    We are planning two 10-day trips for up to 50 other participants, one in Denmark, and one in Ukraine. The program will challenge your understanding of democracy and inspire you to take action for better, more democratic societies. On the trips, we want to show the participants the many different ways that young people in Denmark and Ukraine work with the democratic challenges of our time. You will connect with different youth leaders, join workshops, hear inspiring talks and develop network and friendships across borders.

    By joining this program, you will:

    • Meet young leaders and democratic activists
    • Experience youth activities across civil society and cultural scene
    • Get tools to build your own projects and partnerships

    You can read more about the Exchange Program in this flyer.
