Our projects in Wider Europe are delivered in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia and Ukraine.

In 2014 Active Citizens expanded to the Ukraine. Following a scoping visit to Kyiv, we focused programme design on working with youth in developing behaviour and skills which promote intercultural dialogue and conflict resolution across the whole of Ukraine, and others affected specifically by the conflict in the East of Ukraine.

In 2013 one of our International Study Visits took place in Serbia. Read some stories of the impact the visit had on participants below:
