“The three things we will look for in these works are critical thinking, civic attitudes and civic competencies, or civic education. In fact, these studies give us the answer to the question: what should we do next? Whatever we study, the conclusions that will be made by a researcher – qualitative, critical, scientific, systematic – should lead to a simple but meaningful algorithm that will be clear to both schoolchildren and officials,” – noted co-founder of the Open University of Maidan, founder of the First Platform for Distance Civic Education OUM Online Ostap Stasiv.

The National Memorial Complex of Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred – Museum of the Revolution of Dignity and the public organization “Family of Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred” initiated the establishment of the Serhii Kemskyi Decoration within the framework of the common project “Heroes Decorations”.
