The initiator and coordinator of the project - Mirela Szymczak, Zespół Szkół Ponadgimnazjalnych w Pszowie, Poland . The coordinator from Ukraine - Iryna Kharchenko, Taras Shevchenko Gymnasia, Kropyvnytskyi, Ukraine

The aim of the project:

- promote active citizenship

- develop tolerance and celebrate cultural diversity

- stimulate creativity

-develop interpersonal and leadership skills in young people

- foster a positive image of Polish - Ukrainian cooperation among the participants and in the local community.

Participants learned to identify urgent problems of the modern society and to collaborate in order to sort them out. They used SMART, GROW and DISNEY strategies and modern coaching techniques to brainstorm the ideas. As a result, the students created a guide of positive actions to inspire other young people to become change-makers.

During the project, the students visited the Schindler’s Factory. This exhibition is a story about Cracow and its inhabitants during World War II, both Poles and Jews. Children saw where the lack of tolerance to cultural diversity can bring humanity.

Polish and Ukrainian students shared the results of the project and presented the cultures of their countries during the final event called The Festival of Positive Actions followed by the Folk Evening attended by the parents of Polish participants, school principal and members of local community.
