Ukraine House in Denmark

Panel discussion at Ukraine House in Denmark: How to Nurture a Culture of Responsible Citizenship?

Ukraine House in Denmark will host a panel discussion: How to Nurture a Culture of Responsible Citizenship? Danish and Ukrainian Models from the Past and for the Future. It will take place at Christianshavn, Gammel Dok, Strandgade 27B, 1401 København on 31st of March at 16:00.

We often say "people are key" or “youth is the future” but how can we support them through all the turbulence of the present and prepare for the future, all amidst the largest war on the European continent since WWII? Surviving the war, the housing crisis, recession, climate change, mental health issues. According to the Global Bildung Network, Bildung in Denmark served as the combination of the education and knowledge necessary to thrive in one’s society, and the moral and emotional maturity to be both a team player and have personal autonomy, knowing one's roots and being able to imagine and co-create the future. Bildung has been instrumental in building the strong democratic and prosperous Denmark we know.

In Ukraine, the model of Prosvita or Enlightenment from the early 20th century and practices of the major investors into Ukrainian culture among the societal, religious and business leaders of the past have enabled Ukrainians to persevere against all persecutions of totalitarianism and build a strong civil society in the 21st century.

What can we learn from the Danish and Ukrainian models of responsible citizenship identity formation from the past, that can help ensure a continuously thriving society in Denmark and a resilient, ready to any challenges, dynamic society in Ukraine? How can we support each other in educational and culture development models ensuring the democratic and peaceful future for Europe?

In this session we will explore Ukrainian and Danish models from the past that have nurtured particular Danish and Ukrainian identities and how they may evolve in the future:


Sophia Opatska, a prominent Ukrainian educator, vice rector, Ukrainian Catholic University, co-founder, Lviv Business School

Lene Rachael Andersen, a Danish author, economist, futurist, and philosopher, president, Nordic Bildung, member of the Club of Rome

And representatives of Danish Foundations making long-term investments into civic education, culture and democracy building

Architecture which heals wounds of war or dignity no matter what7.6.2023 12:00:33 CEST | Pressemeddelelse

In circumstances of war it’s not only the re-building and preservation efforts that must be carefully planned and executed but architecture itself becomes a critical aesthetical and healing tool responding to the brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine and to the multiple humanitarian crises which emerged during the first weeks and months of the war. How architecture can heal the wounds of war, both physical and psychological, how it can provide a sense of dignity to people whose spaces and privacy were destroyed by Russian aggression and recreate torn social connections - these key topics were discussed during a panel discussion titled “Shelter the Body, Nurture the Soul” at Ukraine House in Denmark after the opening of the "Spaces of Dignity" exhibition, as part of the Copenhagen Architecture Festival.
