Ukraine must develop as an open, equitable and eco-friendly society



Incubator for Green Communities is an undertaking by representatives of the civil society to jointly create and implement a strategic vision for Ukraine's development, based on sustainable development approach:
The mission of the Incubator for Green Communities is the sustainable development of Ukraine's communities through inclusive forms of societal relations, equitable governance, and attracting the best available eco-friendly technologies.
The Incubator is based on humanist principles, valuing life and dignity, respect for nature, and the internal motivation to take action.

The idea behind the Incubator is that Ukraine needs qualitatively new communities which develop through open (inclusive) forms of societal relations, equitable governance, and attracting the best available eco-friendly technologies.

The primary goal of the Incubator is to help concrete communities achieve sustainability, measurable using indicators of the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

The Incubator’s work will be built on the principle of crowdsourcing. We will engage volunteers and professionals for the incubation of local projects and programs aimed at qualitative changes in specific communities in Ukraine. We will work with communities to raise funds, to achieve tangible positive change, to share success stories and learn from others' mistakes, and to disseminate best practices.

One of the priority regions will be Donbas and we are confident that the accumulated experience will come in handy when Ukraine’s control over the occupied areas is restored and the region returns to peaceful life.
