A significant number of young people in Ukraine have expressed a desire to stay in their place of residence and take an active part in the country's reconstruction. This is evidenced by the results of a national youth survey conducted on behalf of the International Republican Institute as part of the USAID "Dreaming and Acting" program.


The survey was conducted by the Rating Sociological Group in Poland and Info Sapiens in Ukraine on behalf of the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX). The survey data were analyzed by the Center for Analysis and Sociological Research (CISR) of the International Republican Institute.


Youth of Ukraine is ready to participate in the reconstruction of the country: survey results


It is noted that the survey covered the young population aged 10 to 35 living in Ukraine, as well as people who moved to Poland after February 24, 2022.


According to the results, 89% of young people aged 16-35 living in Ukraine believe in the bright future of Ukraine, compared to 81% of young people who moved to Poland.


The study showed that young people living in both Ukraine and Poland almost equally believe in Ukraine's victory in the war - 98% and 97% respectively - and also expressed a desire to take an active part in the reconstruction process. 


In particular, 65% of young people aged 16-35 living in Ukraine are not interested in long-term migration. 


The main reasons why young people do not want to change their place of residence are 

- satisfaction with the current place of residence (44%), 

- ties with family and friends (40%), 

- availability of sufficient financial resources for living (20%),

- patriotism (15%).


Among young people currently living in Poland, 61% of young people aged 16-35 have not been to Ukraine since moving to Poland. Of these, 47% intend to return to their homeland after the war ends, 19% plan to do so soon, and 11% plan to return in some time. 


However, 15% of young people do not plan to return at all.


Also, according to the survey, some young people in Ukraine transfer some of their financial resources to the needs of the military and social sphere - 92% and 76% of young people aged 16-35 living in Ukraine.


As for Ukrainian youth in Poland, 65% said they had volunteered, and 45% made financial donations at least once a month.


Beyond that, young people expressed a strong desire to take an active part in the reconstruction process. 79% of respondents in Ukraine and 83% in Poland expressed this desire.
