Wil je meer weten over de huidige situatie in Oekraïne? En wil je geïnspireerd worden door het werk dat gedaan wordt door Foundations for Freedom (F4F)? Kom dan naar de avond die Initiatives of Change (IofC) op donderdag 5 april organiseert over het werk van dit aan IofC gelieerde programma in Oekraïne. Gastspreker van de avond is Olena Kashkarova, een van de leiders van F4F.

Dit in 1993 opgerichte programma streeft naar een waarlijk vrije, democratische en rechtvaardige maatschappij, waar mensen zich committeren aan morele waarden zoals eerlijkheid en persoonlijke verantwoordelijkheid waarop vrijheid kan gedijen.

Sinds de demonstraties op het Maidanplein in 2013/2014 en sinds de problemen in de Krim en Oost-Oekraine is het bevorderen van de dialoog de belangrijkste activiteit geworden. Dialoogbijeenkomsten over verzoening en de genezing van historische trauma's worden in de verschillende regio's gehouden.

Kashkarova zal een inzicht geven in de huidige situatie van Oekraïne en de mogelijkheden en uitdagingen die op haar pad komen tijdens haar werk. 

Je bent op donderdagavond 5 april vanaf 19:00 welkom om binnen te lopen. Het programma begint om 19:30. De spreektaal van de avond is Engels. Hieronder vind je de aanvullende informatie daarom ook in die taal.



Programme

You are welcome to walk in from 7 pm. The programme will start at 7.30 pm. 

Olena Kashkarova will start by giving a short overview of the general situation in Ukraine and will then focus on Foundation for Freedom. She will elaborate on successes and challenges in regard to two main areas of activity of the foundation. Firstly, she will discuss the project Ukrainian Action: Healing the Past. This project explores different understandings of history as a root of conflict in the Ukrainian society. Secondly, she will share her experience with the general dialogue work that Foundation for Freedom are involved in through the Network of Dialogue Facilitators

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session. After this session we will close the official part of the program and we invite you to continue the conversation over drinks.
