The first two schools were held in July and August 2022 in Poland

The school in Voynovice in July gathered active young people from Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Georgia, Austria, and Germany. They discussed issues of russian terrorism in the past, present and future threats in the participating countries of the school. Moreover, there were discussions about current values ​​in Europe, human rights and responsibilities during martial law, the supply of weapons to Ukraine, and civil society activity during information warfare.

During the fillmaking workshop, the participants created the film «NEVER AGAIN IS AGAIN» about the lives of young people from Ukraine who are forced to leave their homes due to russian terrorism. The video provides an answer to the common question of people from EU countries «how can I help Ukraine?».

Young activists studied the history of the Lemkos while meeting with them, held discussions on the topic of public influence on the course of the war, personal responsibility and democracy in the school's participating countries.
