Our partners

Emerge in Ukraine

The Autumn of 2019 saw our second Emerge Gathering, held in Kyiv. The decision to go there followed developments after the 2014 revolution; the emergence of a vibrant civil society in Ukraine, and in support of democratic norms and their incipient Bildung movement.


Emerge is historically and socially tied to the fate of the Ukrainian people. Since the early days of the war, we have kept weekly online meetings with Ukrainians and our extended networks. This pilgrimage is a chance for the network to deepen its ties to each other and learn lessons that are relevant to a future we all share.
