NABU's Anti-Corruption School has been recognized by EPAC and EACN as the most innovative anti-corruption initiative of the year! The award ceremony took place within the framework of the 21st annual EPAC/EACN conference held in Chisinau (Moldova) on Nov. 23-24, 2022.
“We are proud of this award and thank the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative, the project's main partner, as well as colleagues from the NACP, SAPO, the HACC, and ARMA, who made the school 100 percent anti-corruption! We are also grateful to all international experts, representatives of anti-corruption NGOs, journalists, and lawyers, whose participation contributed to the project's success and usefulness”, says Svitlana Olifira, head of the NABU’s Communications Department.
This project came as opportunity to unite students from different regions and motivate them to fight corruption. It gave them the confidence that state authorities and international partners are united with the Ukrainian youth in the fight against corruption, especially during the war.
As a reminder, this is the fourth award won by NABU’s awareness raising projects, such as the NABU Investigates game, All-Ukrainian Anti-Corruption Moot Court and the Anti-Corruption Augmented Reality project.
NABU’S Anti-Corruption School has been organized thrice: in 2020, 2021, and 2022. In 2020, because of COVID-19, the school was online. For the next two years, students could participate both online and offline. 35 students were selected to do a two-week internship at the Main Detective Department of NABU.
As part of the training, students participated in discussions with representatives of all anti-corruption bodies, completed practical tasks, and developed anti-corruption projects.
