The training "Active citizens" was held in ZNU, which took place over two days. More than ten professors and students from different educational institutions learned how to create grant projects. It is worth noting that for the third year in a row, professors of the Faculty of Foreign Philology as associate professors of the Theory and Practice of Translation from English Svitlana Zapolskykh and Oleksandra Holovko are organizing the training in the framework of the cooperation of ZNU with the British Council in Ukraine according to the international program "Active Citizens Worldwide".
The event began with an introduction and review of the site of the British Council. Participants were told about the objectives of the project and its history. The project started in 2009, and in Ukraine it has been implemented since 2016. The main task of the program is the formation of a civil society. The goal of the organizers is to teach as many citizens as possible leadership skills.
During the training, participants had the opportunity to prove in practice that any problem at the local level could lead to a problem of global scope. They even combined such problems that it would seem impossible to combine. Participants also discussed various stages in the creation of social ideas at various levels such as environmental pollution, lack of infrastructure, insufficient transport and many others.
The grant of the British Council in the amount of 15,000 hryvnas is intended to stimulate action. Svitlana and Oleksandra are sure that it is possible to raise funds for the implementation of a worthy project using grants from various interested organizations. Furthermore, participants received memorable souvenirs from the British Council.
