As part of ASA, four young professionals from Germany and Ukraine organize digital dome talks for six months. The talks will focus on the topics of European integration, democracy and the environment. In order to reach our goals, we are supported by the two partner institutions Change Communications and National Ecological Centre of Ukraine from Kiev. The basis for the cooperation of our German-Ukrainian team is a common understanding of the need for a visible European dialog.
Besides the European Public Sphere project, the participants attend three ASA seminars in English. Here they discuss and develop technical and methodological skills in the field of development policy as well as social and personal skills. At the same time, they explore their own role within global contexts.
These are our great volunteers:
Hi, I’m Regine. I’m currently studying political science (M.A.) at Regensburg University. Before, I studied political science and Arabic studies in Heidelberg. Since my volunteer service in Kyiv 2014-2015 I’m especially interested in Eastern Europe and post-communist states. I’m really looking forward to digitally implement the European Public Sphere Concept in Ukraine together with the other interns and professionals from Democracy International, NECU, and Change Communications.
