According to the standards of higher education in Ukraine, lecturers should systematize students’ knowledge and develop their ability to apply acquired skills in daily healthcare routine.

It is proven that primary medical education is based on practice-oriented learning. The process of practice-oriented training is impossible without state-of-the-art technologies.

International European University does its best to make students acquire vast knowledge and undergo practical training at Ukraine’s brilliant doctors.

Public representatives, together with students, lecturers and the administration of International European University, planted about 900 pine trees at Holosiivskyi National Natural Park.
The organizers called this event #хвойна_туса (pine meet-up), which was supported by the Silpo supermarket chain and initiated by SD Platform NGO.
Our journalists talked to Kateryna Davydkova, the coordinator of environmental matters at SD Platform NGO, about the idea and further plans.

“I try to extensively involve the university community in ecologically vital initiatives. The idea originated from the importance to enrich our country with trees. It’s painful to watch mass deforestation and wood sales. By the way, coniferous forests destroy bacteria in our air and clean our lungs, especially after COVID-19. The #хвойна_туса initiative took place in Vinnytsia and twice in Kyiv. Our International European University regularly joins eco-initiatives and supports the environmental consciousness of young people. In general, around 900 pine trees were planted at Holosiivskyi National Natural Park. Forest officers held a workshop on the proper technique of tree planting and maintenance. Our lungs were filled with useful coniferous air. We believe that our pine trees will also produce phytoncides in a year, which are quite beneficial to human health,” Kateryna said.
It is a great pleasure that International European University promotes an eco-friendly lifestyle, as forests are the lungs of our planet, which have suffered a lot this year and which recovery is crucial to each citizen. Taking the responsibility for the planet and its future, being conscious and caring about environmental problems: it’s about the IEU family.
Activists and students are going to plant more trees in the spring.

Michael Malchieli, the Co-Chair of the Group for Interparliamentary Relations of the Knesset of Israel with the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, and representatives of the Embassy of Israel, Knesset Member Moshe Arbel and Moshe Reuven Asman, the Chief rabbi of Ukraine, made a working visit to International European University.
During the meeting, participants signed an agreement on joint activities in different areas.

The agreement is aimed at regulating the current position between the University and partners, approving mutual cooperation conditions in the improvement of the educational activities, establishing communications between Israel and Ukraine to exchange cultural and training experience.
“Thank you for inviting me and showing your university. It seems to me that I’ve joined the political activity mistakenly. I’ve been always dreaming about education rather than politics, but the Supreme Being has brought me to the political sector. I don’t regret and try to do good deeds, but I’m extremely happy to get an opportunity to focus on education.

To my mind, your new education institution, which has succeeded within a short time, is similar to a share that initially costs little but suddenly raises and becomes quite expensive and valuable. I believe that, together with such a unique and professional team, we’ll be able to implement a lot of great things. Meanwhile, I would like to invite you to our Ministry of Education. I will personally organize this meeting. I’m sure that this collaborative work will enhance our friendship,” Mr. Malchieli said.
At the grand meeting, Michael Malchieli received the acknowledgement for assistance in higher education development, training of students with an active life attitude and fruitful cooperation with the University.
Joint efforts of the parties will encourage the efficient growth of cultural and scientific relations between Ukraine and Israel within the Program of cooperation in education, culture, youth and sports between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the State of Israel in 2019-2022.

The situation of reservoir pollution is critical in Ukraine!

The Dnieper River is annually contaminated with tons of garbage and emissions from different enterprises. Most people know about this problem but keep throwing away garbage and polluting our wonderful river.
There are a lot of beach areas near the river and waste affects our health. Together we can not only clean the riverfront but also get out trash of the river on canoes in the sports rhythm.

Our journalists talked to the organizers of the action, SD Platform non-governmental organization, and discovered all the details.

“Sometimes we see our Dnieper river through rose-colored spectacles. But putting them off, we can notice how much dirt, plastics and strange things are in the river. We have gathered activists who care about its destiny. We made the Dnieper cleaner on our own,” Kateryna Davydkova, a coordinator of the environmental sector at SD Platform, said.

Plastics, bottles, toys and even stolen stuff are just a brief list of the “treasure” found by activists in the Dnieper. This garbage was left by common vacationers who don’t want to keep the Dnieper clean.

“We found a bag with car and apartment keys, a purse, personal documents and bank cards. Without losing any time, we found the owner of lost things via Facebook and returned them the next day. The things have been in the water for more than a year. Thus, the environmental action is referred not just to reservoir rescue, but also to good deeds like in this case,” Said  Mechkour, a foreign student of International European University, added.

Be eco-friendly conscious! If you like resting near the Dnieper, throw away your trash in a garbage can so that other activists won’t find your “treasure”.

Let’s make our river cleaner by small but progressive steps!
