Valeriia Moroz
During my participation in the FLEX Program I got the global view on the world and its issues. With the introduction of Sustainable Development Goals I focused on SDG 4, 11, 12,17 and started off my own initiatives. Since 2015 I began working with youth to promote, discuss and invent the ways of being aware and responsible citizen and make choices that would assist sustainable ways of living and business. Among the initiatives and organizations I am participating in are Ukrainian Integration Movement, World Youth Alliance, U-Reports, European Youth Parliament, AIESEC, Council of Europe. One of the most ultimate approaches is SDG 4.7- Global Citizenship Education, under this topic it became possible to enable the youth to think in terms of Sustainable Development and be inspired by it. In 2017 I became the youth representative in UNESCO-APCEIU GCED conference and workshop in Seoul, Korea.
