Since 2011 I have promoted the P4c methodology among Ukrainian educators. Since 2016 I have worked at the National Centre “Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine,” where I organized camps for teenagers (at the national and international levels) in the following subjects: “Philosophy,” “Ukrainian Culture,” “Religion and Diplomacy,” and “Cultural Diplomacy.”I am the founder of “The 1960s and the Dissident Movement: A Festival for Young People."
