For Children of Ukraine
"Citizens of the Universe" educational initiative
In collaboration with Mercatus Center - Emergent Ventures Fund, and Earthlings Hub educational non-profit, we offer classes for gifted Ukrainian students, 10-14 years old, affected by the war in Ukraine.
Our classes are taught in Ukrainian, English, and Russian.
At our program, we believe that being a citizen of the universe means recognizing your place in the world and taking responsibility for its future. It involves seeing yourself within the broader context of the world around you and making choices that benefit both yourself and the world. We encourage our students to think carefully about their abilities, aspirations, and limitations and to create their own sense of purpose, taking actions that contribute to a better, safer, more stable, and prosperous world.
Our program is designed for bright and inquisitive adolescents aged 10-14 who are deprived of to quality extracurricular education and lack access to caring and knowledgeable adults. We have assembled a team of exceptional educators, psychologists, and scientists who are experts in their fields and skilled at discussing complex and cutting-edge issues with young people.
The goal of our program is to provide interdisciplinary educational courses that help teenagers develop a modern scientific worldview and an understanding of their role in it.
Our program is founded on philosophical principles that emphasize the interconnectedness and systems thinking approach to the world; the model of scientific knowledge and individual worldview, and the fundamentally fractal and fragmented nature of both.
