The two hundred-fortieth (240) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.


About us:

The "Active Community" initiative was launched by activists of the "Republika'' Institute after the Euromaidan (2014), which focused on the activation and involvement of Ukrainians in the decision-making process. The goal for 2025: to activate and involve at least 1% of citizens in making decisions and promoting reforms in Ukraine on a systematic basis for the well-being of Ukrainian communities. Today we work in 30 communities in Ukraine.
