Service Learning for Recovery of Ukraine

The invasion of Ukraine is causing a massive humanitarian crisis. Many countries are providing assistance to Ukraine in immediate response but also broader discussions about longer term recovery on the principles of Build Back Better take place at the level of governments, business associations, universities, NGOs. International experience and international perspective is also very important to make the process transparent and up to speed. With the beginning of the war, many Ukrainian universities showed exemplary resilience and solidarity, engaged in global advocacy for Ukraine. Most supported their students and faculty in the time of trial. Volunteering became a part of everyday life for many Ukrainian students and faculty members. A sudden and rapid increase of requests from society makes a Service Learning methodology an opportunity to fulfill some new missions.
This panel organized by the Catholic University of Ukraine, a member of the Uniservitate regional hub in Central, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, invites to reflect and discuss on the following questions:
Global interdependence and how local issues in various parts of the World influence all of us?
How do local service learning projects help in solving global issues?
What can Ukraine learn from the global community for the recovery programs?
