“The Eastern Partnership Civil Society Fellows’ Alumni Network gave me friends and experiences for a lifetime. Meeting with the EU officials was an exclusive opportunity to communicate with the policymakers directly and understand the crucial aspects of their working process behind the curtains. Now, I can better articulate the efforts of the high-level politicians to keep pushing the democratic machinery and do all the necessary steps to find compromises and solutions. I am thankful to the project team for their constant support and vibrant atmosphere at each event organized in Brussels and Kyiv.” Andrii CHUBYK

Enable Strategy XXI

The project: Enable Strategy XXI aimed to build capacity and enhance leadership skills for the core members of the local think tank Centre for Global Studies “Strategy XXI”. To achieve that, Andrii conducted a series of training on project management, gender equality, and team motivation. The project delivered special master-classes on liaising with the Ukrainian and European Public Officials in the Energy sector. To analyze the energy policies on the local and European level, Andrii proceeded with his extensive research as an intern at the Research Center of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association in Bratislava (Slovakia) and the Reanimation Package of Reforms (Kyiv).

The professional team of the Center for Global Studies improved the quality of their research and organizational management. Thus, the members enhanced their awareness in writing, reporting, supervising, and mentoring; they became more tech-friendly and started to apply the tech-tool in their everyday professional life. The workshops held within the training empowered a female colleague to initiate a project: Energy Security and Effective Strategic Communication between the Civic and Governmental actors: V4+Ukraine, and submit it to the International Visegrad Fund. Also, the think tank produced a guideline on information security according to the European standards. Therefore, Andrii’s participation at the international conferences and internships at the leading local and European institutions increased his visibility and research skills.
