CANactions School is an educational platform, with offices in Kyiv and Amsterdam. Our mission is to enhance the creation of places and communities where people love to live and work.
Currently, a great social demand has been triggered for principled reform of existing relationships between citizens and other actors (business, government authorities, professionals) who shape our everyday life in different dimensions – from cultural to spatial. This has immediately led to questions – 'Who are those change-makers that could moderate the process of building new types of connections in the modern cities?' and 'What tools and approaches do they need to be able to successfully deal with complexity of the current challenges?'
Since 2015 CANactions School runs post-graduate interdisciplinary Educational Programs in the field of Urban Studies, Integrated Urban Development and Strategic Spatial Planning in a context of local and global city challenges..
Throughout the year various open educational events are held as part of CANactions Public Program.
CANactions International Architecture Festival — one of the biggest annual architecture gatherings in Europe, running annually since 2008.
CANactions Competition Program includes organizing and conducting international and all-Ukrainian architectural and urban development contests aimed at developing social initiatives for the transformation of the modern cities, support for young architects and enhancing international co-operation.
