The «Fair of Public Organizations» was held in Lutsk, in which activists could «sell» their organizations that fell to their liking.
More than 10 youth organizations in the Volyn Oblast Library represented their «goods» at the fair. Activists of the Volyn Youth Center hosted the «Fair of Projects and Youth Organizations», which took place within the framework of the Lutsk Explore/sion training project. The organizers wanted to attract young people to social activities, motivate and, in practice, show the work of public organizations.
Before starting the show Susana Zalanova spoke about the experience of the UN Volunteers in Ukraine.
Then the «Lutsk Explore/sion», Lutsk «Plast», FRI Lutsk/ Foundation of Regional Initiatives, Ukrainian Debate Federation in Volyn, VisitLutsk.com, NGO «JoY», Aina Bera Lutsk, IMAGO, EnglishOK, «Active Community of Lutsk», National Alliance and others were presented at the «Fair of Public Organizations».
Before the fair, a special currency was given to the audience – the «likes» that participants could give to the public organizations that they liked. Instead, organizations offered their goods to students: travel, new knowledge and skills, interesting experiences and internships.
At the first stage, participants were taught leadership, communication, public speaking, volunteering and self-organization, as well as project planning. The second stage was the fair. At the third stage, students are offered internships in those organizations that they like at the fair.
The «Active Community» of Lutsk presented the initiative and invited participants to make a selfie foto with a hero – TomorrowMAN. The regional coordinator Olga Valianik also talked about the main achievements, creative activities, trainings that the Institute «Republica» makes within the All-Ukrainian initiative «Active Community».
