Recently the participants of the British Council’s Active Citizens project have been announced. The project launched in 2009 aims at intercultural dialogue and sustainable social development and has run in over 40 countries in the UK and across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, South and East Asia.

In 2009 to 2012 the project has already been implemented in Ukraine, and now it’s time to return with a revised format and renewed focus. Today we would like to re-launch it in a new format and with different accents. This year the project started also in the USA, Vietnam, South Sudan and Uganda.
