If only they were adults

A year ago one would hardly believe that Ukraine would one day suffer from chaotic violence. Today, however, it is the grim reality in some regions. But this is not a problem that popped up overnight. It reveals a deeper background of the society. Many people are ready to accept everyday violence, for example the one directed towards children. To counter this approach — and the broader violence it entails in the longer run — Arena CS helped Ukrainian NGOs organize Forum «Future without Violence» where schoolchildren from all over Ukraine, from Donetsk to Rivne, were trained to discern and withstand violence. Hopefully they will remember it when grown up; hopefully, soon.
