OBMIN – Shaping Change Together

This project boosts Ukrainian civil society's skills and networks with European experts to enhance stability and professionalism amid war and reconstruction.

Shaping Change Together

Civil society organizations around the world are under enormous pressure. Due to the Russian war of aggression, this is particularly the case in Ukraine. Ukrainian civil society has proven to be very active, especially since Russia’s invasion in breach of international law, and has taken on many new functions in recent years. However, it is confronted with a multitude of parallel challenges: in addition to the burden of the war situation, processes of democratic transformation and EU rapprochement as well as reconstruction must be shaped at the same time.

There are currently many questions: How can the potential and resilience of civil society actors be strengthened? What do civil society organizations need to build stable structures and professionalize them? What are the conditions for success for secure future prospects for civil society – especially in times of parallel challenges posed by the Russian war of aggression, EU rapprochement, reconstruction and modernization?

The project focuses on increasing the skills and knowledge of civil society actors in Ukraine in order to stabilize and professionalize them. Through intensive exchange and the creation of networks both within Ukraine and with European experts, a sustainable strengthening of the capacity to act is to be achieved.
