“Be Brave Like Ukraine” is an online course created in Ukraine about how Ukrainian identity and courage were formed. This educational product became a logical continuation of the international advertising campaign “Bravery to be Ukraine”.
The online university Choice31 developed the interactive course in cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and experts in history, culture, theology, business, and political science. The team of creative agency Banda became the project consultants.
“Ukrainians are already known in the world as a nation of brave people. People who stop tanks with their bare hands and continue to bring victory under the threat of death. People now associate us with courage, but they don’t know that our nation has always been this way. From Kyivan Rus to Zaporizhzhya Sich. From the dissident movement to the Revolution of Dignity. Be Brave Like Ukraine online course is a great opportunity to learn more about our nation,” said Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
“After February 24, Choice31 decided to do what we do best for people – provide quality education. We’ve seen people lose their jobs and normal lives and rebuild everything from scratch. We see the heroism of the Ukrainian people, who are ready to give their lives for their freedom. This is all Ukrainian courage, which we decided to share with the whole world thanks to the interactive course”, – said Evgeniya Glizer, CEO of Choice31.
“Be Brave Like Ukraine” is a real guide, a kind of virtual journey through Ukraine. It will be especially interesting to join this online journey for those who feel a lack of knowledge about this country. The course is also relevant for a more “advanced” audience: it is an excellent opportunity to remember what has already been forgotten and structure your knowledge.
Thanks to short lessons about culture, geography, history, and business, the authors illustrate the formation of the state and answer the question: how to be brave like Ukraine?
“There are three fronts in countering the Kremlin’s aggression: physical (actually, a literal front), economic and informational. Our project was created for the information front: a person who completes this course will never again be influenced by imperial propaganda with narratives that devalue Ukraine”, – said Artem Borodatyuk, founder of the Netpeak Group.
With the outbreak of a full-scale war, people worldwide began to show more interest in Ukraine and its history. Such trends are also observed directly among Ukrainians: they seek to cover the “white spots” in knowledge about their state. That is why the course is available in English and Ukrainian.
