NGO Scenario in cooperation with the "Our Kids" Center organized the camp for political education of youth "CampUp" for students between the ages 13 and 18. The camp took place in Kyiv from 16.07.2018 to 20.07.2018. We believe that children and youth are the drivers of change in a country, so it is crucial to develop and train their critical thinking from the early age. The Camp's idea is to combine education with games: participants listen to interesting lectures from experts, create their own "political parties" and compete in the improvised elections. The participants had to come up with new reforms, present and defend them. It was amazing five days!

Today there was a special training at our Center. Julia, a volunteer at the "Let's do it!" movement was talking about various environmental issues. In the form of fun and interesting games, she explained to the children of the Center why environmental protection is important, what needs to be done to clean our planet from garbage, and how to recycle. The children were very interested. They came up with various ways of reusing items (i.e. using glass bottles instead of plastic ones) and promised to be more cautious to their environment from now on. At the "Our Kids" Center we think that protection of the environment is a crucial topic nowadays that must be discussed on a regular basis. Thank you, Julia, for such interactive training!
