They worked together on projects geared towards sustainable economic and social development of Ukraine.

YOU Camp continues the tradition of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation’s successful cooperation with the Coca-Cola Foundation. In 2013-2015, the Climate Change Camp was organised by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation with the support of the Coca-Cola Foundation, where the Zavtra.UA scholarship holders had an opportunity to raise awareness to environmental problems and propose solutions. In 2018 and 2019, the Coca-Cola Foundation supported the 2nd and the 3rd YOU Camp summer camps.

The goal of the Zavtra.UA programme for the past 14 years has been to create a new generation of change makers: a generation with excellent education and skills, with mastery of the best international practices and ideas; a generation that will think and feel differently, and so be able to make an important contribution to building the country. The program has been fulfilling the mission of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation to empower new generations to become the change-makers of tomorrow since 2006.
