I have a background in international management and history. I am based in Munich but I have lived and studied in Ukraine. My main interests are development of international business activities in Ukraine and anticorruption programmes in post-Soviet countries.
Why I joined FutureLab Europe? Because I wanted to gain more knowledge of how the European political institutions work in order to be able to implement the same procedures back in Ukraine. I believe that FutureLab Europe creates a great opportunity to build a strong and open-minded personality. Thanks to FutureLab Europe I became more proactive and more open to different ideas
Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? Because Europe cannot be operated by politicians only. Citizens should play an important role in monitoring government activities. Active citizenship is important because it brings more trust and power to local and international political institutions.
