Changing society for the better

Talk, act and inspire – that is the triad of our work. We initiate debates and give practical stimuli for international understanding, to shape a lively civil society and for the knowledge of tomorrow.


We deliberately create spaces for engagement with issues, people and cultures of Ukraine. In addition, we promote reflection on the future of the European Security Order.

I want to instigate something with new initiatives. So if you want to call me an instigator, I agree with that.
