Ukrainian Vibes is a project that gives young Europeans the opportunity to participate in discussions on topics that are important for modern European society and creates awareness of Ukrainian history and culture in Europe. Change Communications participates in the project for the third time: in 2021, in 2022 and in 2023.


  • To organize a series of online and offline discussions among Ukrainian and German community on the topics of Ukrainian history, civic activism and the consequences of war for the ecology and human rights.
  • To encourage experts and young people to participate in discussions.

  • The initial idea was to hold live discussions in different cities of Germany and Ukraine. But due to the restrictions related to Covid pandemic and the war, most of the discussions were online. Unfortunately, there was no off-line discussion in Ukraine – only in Germany, however bright online events took place in Ukraine.
