In summer 2018 Multiplicities supported the German-Ukrainian youth exchange "Participation. Urbanism. Interaction". It brought together 20 young participants from Berlin and Chernihiv and promotes discussion about active participation and transformation of public space.

As a project of the Meet Up! programme, supported by the Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility and Future" (EVZ), the exchange is aimed at finding common solutions in questions of use and responsibility for public urban areas.

Workshops on participation and creative citizen participation as well as getting to know inspiring Berlin citizens' initiatives are the focus of the Berlin part of the project.

Through the international exchange of experience and creative examples of engagement in Berlin, participants learn to analyse case studies, to define target groups for extended cooperation and to recognize both potentials and challenges of participative processes in good time.

The participants apply the learned methods of creative participation in Ukraine. Together with the neighborhood the future of the park "Birch Grove" will be decided, participation will be strengthened and a plan for the revitalization of the park will be developed.
