Active YOUkraine

„Active YOUkraine“ is the name of a new blog where Ukrainian activists present themselves and their work by means of Digital Storytelling. These people are connected by challenging inner-social borders in Ukraine through their social commitment and therefore contribute to a sustainable change in society. That is why the blog is a platform especially for activists from the field of LGBTIQ, national minorities (Crimea tatars, Roma and others) as well as young artists and cultural managers in order to exchange and network. The blog offers an interesting mix of digital stories captured in videos and informative interviews that should give an impulse for collaboration and networking.
