Winners of Zavtra.UA scholarship programme implemented the “Nature Reserve” project in four different regions of Ukraine

In late August the winners of Zavtra.UA scholarship programme by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation accomplished their mission under the "Nature Reserve 2009" project. During the summer 55 volunteers from all over Ukraine worked in such places as Gomolsha Forests National Park in Kharkiv region, Hust castle in Transcarpathian region, Bilgorod-Dnistrovskii fortress in Odessa oblast and Svirzh castle of Liviv region.

Under this project the young scholars removed litter, stubbed the plants growing on the remnants of the ancient buildings and upgraded the areas around the sites. Additionally, the volunteers carried out a public survey on social projects aimed at restoring cultural heritage and edified both local people and tourists about preserving the sites belonging to the Nature Reserve, Historical and Cultural Funds of our country.

The "Nature Reserve" is a social project implemented by the efforts of the Zavtra.UA programme winners. The key tasks of the project include improvement of ecological situation on the remarkable sites of cultural and historical significance, development of museums and nature reserves, as well as increasing public awareness regarding the problems faced by historical and cultural relics of Ukraine. The students take part in the project voluntarily. Their travel, accommodation and catering expenses are covered by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

In 2007-2008 the "Nature Reserve" project was implemented at the following locations:

  • Pereyaslav National History and Ethnography Reserve, town of Pereyaslav-Khmelnytskii
  • Kamianets National History and Architecture Reserve, town of Kamianets-Podilskii
  • National M.I.Pyrogov House Museum, city of Vinnytsia
  • State History and Culture Reserve, town of Dubno
  • Bilgorod-Dnistrovskii Fortress, a historical and architectural relic dated 13-15 century, town of Bilgorod-Dnistrovskii
