Projects that unites New East was founded in 2016 to change the cultural landscape and the physical appearance of the region. It all started with local activities and exchange projects with other countries.
The organization's work now extends beyond the region and the country, developing four areas - non-governmental culture, non-formal education, media space and community engagement programs.
Our main priorities are the development and access to new education in Eastern Europe (and the New East), the promotion of public participation and positive change that helps develop the cultural landscape of the Post-Soviet region.
FOR NEW EDUCATION, ENGAGED CITIZENS
AND POSITIVE CHANGE
To promote positive change in the region by fostering good practice in Eastern Europe
Involving a wide variety of social groups in an open dialogue (especially ethnic minorities and young people)
Creating platforms for collaborative solutions to improve the cultural landscape of the region
Creating and developing programs focused on social positive change, interaction, and inclusion
Support for youth and independent creative initiatives
Development of non-state culture
To raise themes of relevance and depth to eastern European society - equality, disinformation, democratic principles, freedom of speech etc
Creating accessible non-formal educational programs (especially for young people) to develop media literacy, journalism, critical thinking and analysis
Creating platforms for international cooperation, exchanges to find long-term positive solutions
We achieve all these goals through projects, events, activities, art and education, experts and an active community.
In 2021, New East turned five years old and has now established a vibrant, active and creative network of youth leaders, experts, freelancers, co-creators and partners. The capacity and role of the organisation in the region is actively growing and the number of active members is rapidly increasing.
