OSCE Launches Youth Contact Groups Project in Ukraine

 The project aims to empower young people in Ukraine to become dialogue facilitators in their country.

The project will establish a group of approximately 10-15 young people who will form an OSCE SMM Youth Contact Group in Kyiv. These students will participate in a three day workshop at the end of September during which they will develop a strategy for establishing dialogue with other young people in Government-controlled territories of Luhansk and Donetsk as well as facilitating dialogue opportunities in Kyiv and other parts of Ukraine.  Deadline for applications is 18th September 2015.
