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?».
