“On the 30th anniversary of the restoration of statehood, ANTS launched the NATO PA’s first Youth Model. Ukraine, which has resisted Russian military aggression for the past eight years, has become a contributor to European security. The further development of Ukraine’s strategic partnership with NATO entails a process of domestic transformations in which youth from various regions of Ukraine must be involved. One of the project’s objectives is to raise Ukrainian youth awareness of NATO’s history and standards, as well as cooperation with Ukraine. According to our vision, “Ukraine in NATO by 2030,” it is the youth who will demand democratic transformations in responsible state officials, as well as the acceleration of reforms. That is why ANTS launched the NATO PA Youth Model in order to prepare progressive youth for a responsible task – the implementation of the course for joining NATO enshrined in the Constitution.”

“The NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s youth model personifies Ukrainians’ commitment to NATO’s democratic values and serves as a catalyst for our country’s development. We, as Ukraine’s future community of young leaders, are well aware of the responsibility that rests on us, and by participating in the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s youth model, we demonstrate our readiness for big changes and constant progress.”
People’s Deputy of Ukraine and Head of the Ukrainian delegation to the NATO PA in 2018-2019
“Ukraine’s youth will transform the country! The Constitutional path for Ukraine’s accession to NATO is being implemented by raising the level of awareness among Ukrainian youth about NATO PA activities, standards, history, and interactions with Ukraine. The NATO PA youth model is a communication platform for young people from all over Ukraine, from various universities and specialties, who are active progressives with Euro-Atlantic beliefs. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for interaction, finding common solutions, defending a position through the representation of various countries as delegates, and creating a shared future for Europe and the world.”
