About

Ro3kvit is a coalition of over 80 professionals from Ukraine and beyond who unite to create knowledge and methodologies for rebuilding Ukraine’s urban and rural areas and infrastructure. All experts have experience in developing projects in Ukraine or post-conflict planning. At least 60% of the team members are Ukrainian. Among them are researchers, designers, policy advisors and educators with a wide range of backgrounds from architecture and urbanism to sociology and ecology.

The Ukranian NGO is founded in March 2022 in response to the massive destruction caused by Russian military aggression.

Through design and research, we address urgent needs and connect them to future strategies. Fuelled by studies on other (postwar) countries, we are developing future-oriented urban design methods, co-creative organisation and sustainable development.

Ro3kvit is a Ukrainian-based project with a foreign support. All experts have experience in developing projects in Ukraine or in a post-conflict planning. At least 50% of the team members are Ukrainian experts. Among them are researchers, designers, policy advisors, educators.
