Op 11 november 2022, vandaag een jaar geleden, werd de Oekraïense stad Kherson bevrijd. Deze stad is een van onze partnersteden in het programma ‘support to recovery rehabilitation and reconstruction of local governments and communities in Ukraine’. Vandaag vieren wij dit jubileum maar staan wij ook stil bij de moeilijk omstandigheden waar Kherson zich vandaag de dag nog steeds in bevind.

The Spring Summer School program has been rolled out by the International Cooperation Agency of the Association of Netherlands Municipalities (VNG International) as a part of their "Support to Recovery, Rehabilitation, and Reconstruction of Local Governments and Communities in Ukraine" initiative. The program is in collaboration with the Association of Ukrainian Cities and is specifically designed for representatives of territorial communities in Ukraine.

The Strategic Partnership between the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and VNG International is 5-year programme, focused on 4 thematic priorities: Security & Rule of Law, Migration, Local Revenue Mobilisation, and Integrated Water Management.
