Sprache des Tagungstitel:
A coalition of mainly JKU staff members and Linz residents (esp. current and former students) emerged to commit themselves at the local level in solidarity with Ukraine right after the beginning of the war. The focus of this initiative lies on the support and integration of Ukrainian refugee students. The initiative benefitted from committed individuals who bring in their volunteering experience and their talent to mobilize others as well as of already established university structures. This initiative shows how important long-lasting institutional structures as well as their reliable financial funding are and how cooperation between formal bodies and informal, spontaneous individual commitment can succeed in the context of handling societal challenges.
