Institute of Partnerships for Sustainable Development

Ambassador: Daria Mustafina , Ukraine

Daria has experienced the issues inherent to a nation in conflict. As an attendee of One Young World’s Bangkok summit in 2015, she was inspired to create an environment in Ukraine where people can come from around the world to communicate their nation’s problems, and forge partnerships over shared human values. In late 2015, Daria lead a group of her friends and colleagues to form the institute of Partnership for Sustainable Development (IPSD). The IPSD applied for, and won, a grant worth $24,000 from the Black Sea Trust Fund. Using this fund, Daria and her colleagues spent eight months planning and preparing a workshop for young thinkers to discuss humanity’s common goals. Since this workshop, attendees have returned to their respective countries and organised their own events, covering topics ranging from conflict to digital security.
