"Dream and act" is a 5-year program aimed at developing and supporting young people in Ukraine, creating a favorable environment in which youth will have the opportunity to realize their dreams, ideas and visions of the country's development. Using a youth-oriented approach – not for young people, but together with them – the program promotes youth innovation, entrepreneurship, increased participation in community decision-making and problem-solving at the national level, and strengthens the potential of Ukrainian youth to be a driving force for pluralism and respect for diversity. The "Dream and Act" involves young people in the development and implementation of projects and initiatives, and conducts research to form youth policy and move towards effective and sustainable change.
