Our focus on Post-Soviet and partner countries resonates with a broader vision of empowering young people worldwide. We believe those countries have a collective memory about socialist era.

Delve into the historical significance of elections, legislation, government, and policing

While the perceptions of these concepts have evolved over time, they were once paramount to the citizens of the Soviet Union member and partner countries. By preserving and harnessing this collective memory as an educational tool, we strive to fortify the political awareness and active involvement of young individuals.
