Advisory Board established in the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House

Advisory Board of the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House is appointed

In the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House, the future users will be able to influence its direction. For that reason, the partners behind the project (the Danish Youth Council, DUF and the Danish Cultural Institute, DCI) are now establishing an Advisory Board with representatives of both Danish and Ukrainian youth. The Advisory Board is selected for a 1 year duration and will be guiding DCI, DUF and the local secretariat in the House in Kyiv on a number of strategic issues in 2021.


For example, advising on the thematic priorities of planned house activities; suggesting new initiatives and ideas for activities; and providing input for stakeholder and partner development in both Ukraine and Denmark.

Following an open call application process in December 2020, the 20-member Advisory board has now been selected with participation across a wide range of youth and youth actors in the two countries.
