The Victor Pinchuk Foundation’s Zavtra.UA scholarship programme with support of the Coca-Cola Foundation announced the start of the open competition for the 3rd “YOU Camp – Youth, Opportunities, Unity” summer camp for Ukrainian students. One hundred students50 from temporarily transferred universities from the occupied territories in eastern Ukraine, 50 from universities in other regions – will come together to develop projects geared towards community economic, social and ecological sustainable development.

YOU Camp will provide students with practical skills to develop and implement projects. They will also receive expert and mentor support as well as networking opportunities. Students will learn how to gather data and process information, to develop an effective business plan, to raise funds and to present the projects to clients and public.

The students will develop projects in ecology (water stewardship; waste management and recycling; renewable energy and energy conservation; ecosocial enterprise creating), gender equality and women empowerment (battling gender inequality in the workplace; encouraging women political participation and leadership; fighting gender-based violence; reclaiming sexual and reproductive rights), and social innovation and civil society (healthcare; education; economics; civil society).

 

YOU Camp continues in the tradition of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation’s successful cooperation with the Coca-Cola Foundation. In 2013-2015, the Climate Change Camp was organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation with the support of the Coca-Cola Foundation and gave Zavtra.UA scholarship holders the opportunity to raise awareness to environmental problems and provide incentives to address them. In 2018, the Coca-Cola Foundation supported the 2nd YOU Camp.

 

The goal of the Zavtra.UA programme for the past 13 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.
