On 18-22 April in the village of Slavsko was held On-Arrival Training for EVS volunteers. The meeting was attended by a dozen volunteers from Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, Italy and France, who currently reside in countries of the Eastern Partnership: Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova within the EVS program.

Slavsko is a picturesque tourist resort, which comes alive in high seasons. There you can walk in the mountains, ski, ride on quads and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Carpathian mountains. In winter when the ski season begins, local resorts are filled with tourists who come in crowds, even for a weekend, to take a breath in the fresh open air. On the street stalls one can buy original regional products, including handicrafts.

During the day, the participants took part in several activities held in the conference room, during which were taken and discussed various topics related to the EVS issues and cultural differences in different countries. There were discussed, among others, topics concerning the conflicts and challenges that arise during the mutual cooperation between volunteers, local communities and receiving organizations. During the stay, participants were allowed to use all the facilities of the guesthouse, including garden, billiards, sauna or restaurant. In the evenings, there was opportunity to spend free time together by the fireplace, share experiences and ideas with other volunteers. The only thing that failed indeed was the weather. It was mostly rainy and snowy, which for those who were already thinking about upcoming spring was quite a surprise.

Polish Cinema Evenings - a series of weekly Friday meetings - were inaugurated on 10 April 2015 in Chernivtsi. The main goal of the event is to show the Ukrainian audience a few selected pictures of Polish cinema. At the end of each projection the organizers plan to hold a short discussion about presented film considering a broader political, cultural or military aspects of its background. This is to facilitate the audience understanding of the circumstances in which a film has been shot.

The first screening took place in the heart of the city, the cultural center of Paul Celan on Kobylianska street. The first to be shown was Operation Simoom (Operacja Samum). In the event took part participants of free Polish courses, who thus have had the opportunity to familiarize themselves a bit with Polish culture and at the same time hear the living, somewhat less formal Polish language, as well as others interested in this undertaking; since the meetings are freely open to all residents of the city.

Let's hope that the interest of the initiative among citizens of Chernivtsi will still keep on increasing.
