In October 2021, the European Values Centre for Security Policy launched the Resilience Academy project intending to educate and strengthen democratic civil society of the Eastern Partnership countries in the domains of cybersecurity, personal and operational security, resilience against malign foreign influence, protection, and revitalization of the environment. This project aims to help the countries in their democratic transformative processes by building the capacities of young professionals, talented students, and representatives of civic society who have the potential to sit in future democratic institutions. The project’s focus is to share the experience from the European Union, especially the Czech Republic, through workshops, study trips, and fellowships. The Resilience Academy 2021 concentrated on Belarus.
The project was supported by the TRANSITION PROMOTION program of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
