About the Center

Since its creation in 2007, the Center has endeavored to explore the ways in which we can be effective and proactive contributors to positive societal change in Belarus.

The Center was established recognizing that the key to affecting positive societal change lies in the access to higher education and to the critical thinking and global perspectives that such an education should provide.

The power of education of this kind is not only linked to the development of a healthy civil society, but to the empowerment of a population and its ability to shape it’s own democracy and place in a global context.

The initiatives described throughout this site have grown out of this philosophy. These are varied and address the many ways in which higher education can provide proactive approaches to knowledge as the first link to application and action.

Education may not always provide explosive moments, but it inspires and it offers the deliberate and steady pace towards substantive change.
