The Ukrainian-Danish Youth House
Much is at stake in Ukraine. The country is the focal point of a new conflict in Europe, while at the same time undergoing extensive reform processes to strengthen democracy, promote human rights and create sustainable growth. The Ukrainian youth play an important part in this development.
The Youth House is a platform for young people from Ukraine and Denmark supporting participation, democracy, and creativity. Based in Kyiv, it is the ambition to engage, facilitate, and support youth projects and activism across the countries.
Workshops, social activities, youth festivals, cultural projects and exchange trips will build bridges and friendships from Kyiv to Copenhagen, from Mariupol to Mariager.
Dialogue, new ideas and inspiring meetings are at the core of the vibrant spot, which is based on the strong belief that everybody can join and get involved.
It is a place for creativity, big dreams, and collaboration. A place to discuss and investigate one’s rights as a young person – and it is a safe place where you can hang out with both your present and future friends.

Danish Cultural Institute and The Ukrainian-Danish Youth House
As lead partner, we have the overall administrative and financial responsibility of The Ukrainian-Danish Youth House. The Youth House in Kyiv is run day-to-day by a local secretariat, with support from the the consortium: Danish Cultural Insitute and the Danish Youth Council.
In 2020 Danish Cultural Institute and the Danish Youth Council (DUF) joined together to create a new youth house in Kyiv to strengthen democratic participation among Ukrainian youths and establish Ukrainian and Danish youth partnerships. The project received 18 million DKK from a youth pool under the Neighbourhood Programme of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
To support the young generation’s ability to impact their shared future, the Neighbourhood programme at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark has supported the second phase of the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House with a total budget of 44 million DKK for 2022-2025.
