The Erasmus+ project, Baltics4UA (Supporting Ukraine through citizen engagement at Baltic Universities), aims to enhance Baltic universities’ social responsibility through civic engagement actions to address the current Ukrainian humanitarian crisis in the Baltics. Baltics4UA focuses on the need to empower higher education institutions (HEIs) to support active citizenship within formal education, while answering the need of Ukrainian refugees to continue their learning and life journey in the Baltics or in Ukraine.
