The mission of the “Aspen Teens: Fight for UA Dream” project is to create a community of teenagers where they can express their thoughts, engage in discussions, find like-minded individuals, and shape their vision for the future of Ukraine. During these dialogues, they analyze texts from renowned thinkers and provide their assessments of the relevance of various ideas. 

The project is implemented in partnership with the Klitschko Foundation.
