Ukraine
can be better

Navigation "Ukraine can be better" is an analytical document created to help identify key issues and ways to solve them in the political, economic and social spheres in Ukraine.

Navigation is the answer to the another request from a society that сan be noticed more often among young people and non-indifferent Ukrainians.

A dozen authors with different experiences and points of view joined the writing of this publication, which was a rather risky idea from the beginning.

However, this symbiosis eventually gave the opportunity to balance the approaches and to find the exactly that fresh look, which is so often in lack in party programs, ministerial strategies, parliamentary decisions, political talk shows.

Of course, the opinions expressed are not the truth at the last instance. However, it is not an exaggeration to point out that these ideas exactly deserve your attention and their further actualization.

Remember that it is your choice that defines the route that our country will use to move towards the future.

The chance for another, for better Ukraine is always there!

"Youth: Our Word" is an attempt to find a solution and give our vision of the possible Ukrainian youth development.

The most interesting part of the brochure are three of the best open essays on the challenges faced by young people, these essays have won in the final of the initiative among the hundreds of texts sent to the contest.

During two years, the SD Platform with the initiative "Youth. Our Word" has visited 10 cities of Ukraine - Dnipro, Mykolayiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Kyiv and other regional centers. In each city, SD Platform activists have created a discussion platform on the topic of social problems. Every young person is familiar with these problems- corruption in education, inconsistency of university programs with the realities of the labor market, difficulties in obtaining the first job, low wages, "brain drain" issue and many others.

The series of 3-day meetings in each city brought youth leaders, students, activists, members of public and political organizations and representatives of state institutions together. So the voice of the young people was heard even by the closed to dialogue and discussions public authorities.

In the final of the initiative, a brochure "Youth. Our Word" has became the subject of a joint analytical work by hundreds of young people from different regions of Ukraine. Indeed, in spite of regions, differences in age, social status and profession, all of us, young Ukrainians, are concerned about the same issues:

— Education. Tool or formality?!

— Virus of unemployment: is there a cure?

— Social integration of youth

We permanently focus on the importance of youth participation in the state governance. But do young people want to take part in political processes? Do they wish the qualitatively change of the political situation in their own country? Brochure "Restoration of trust in politics through the participation of young people. Example of Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine " is the answer to these complicated questions.

The book is an analytical study result of youth participation in political processes (not only in Ukraine, but also in the countries of the Eastern Partnership - Moldova and Georgia).

During the research, SD Platform and other voluntary organizations conducted a survey of 1,200 respondents - young people aged 18 to 35 from Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.

The specific thing about the research is that it clearly answers to the question of why the political sphere is unpopular among young people and shows their life attitudes and general tendencies of attitude to politics and public sphere.
