Schools for Democracy Final Report 2017-2021

“Schools for Democracy: Supporting Education Reforms in Ukraine” Programme implemented by the European Wergeland Centre (EWC) aims to support democratic reforms in school education in Ukraine by promoting democratic culture and democratic citizenship in policy and practice.

In 2016, Ukraine embarked on the most comprehensive school education reform in its history. The New
Ukrainian School puts a major emphasis on educating citizens who think critically and innovatively,
participate in democratic processes, as well as value and respect dignity and the rights of all.

Schools for Democracy is developed and implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Education and
Science of Ukraine. To ensure systemic and sustainable results, the EWC has partnered with a range of
public and civil society institutions in Ukraine and internationally.
