This is an exhibition in the context of the environmental crisis, which presents caricatures by artists from different countries. (Eastern and Western Europe). The educational idea itself consists in increasing eco-awareness and consciousness of environmental degradation and its growth limits, in addition, to trying to contribute to the understanding of power imbalances, as well as the limitations of social and cultural frames of reference, in relation to our respective points of view. The online meeting is another stage in strengthening German-Ukrainian ties in the field of environmental protection and contributes to eco-social transformations in Eastern Europe.
