The ACE supports the national Union of Architects of Ukraine

 

"On behalf of the Architects' Council of Europe and the entire architectural European community, we would like to express to you our support for all Ukrainian architects in the face of the political situation in which Ukraine and its citizens find themselves.The Architects' Council of Europe finds it unacceptable that one country grants itself the sovereign right to shape the borders of another sovereign country. For years we have been developing international cooperation with partners from Eastern Europe and we want to strengthen it. We share a common history and past experiences, as well as the same challenges of the present and the future.
We believe that support for each other among architects in Europe is fundamental, both for the development of our organisations in times of peace and in the event that one of us is affected by a crisis.
We declare our support to the National Union of Architects of Ukraine and its members in this difficult time".
Ruth Schagemann, ACE President

Belgium    
The Belgian federal government’s crisis center has asked all Belgian localities the list of possible public and private hosts for Ukranian refugees on their territory. The compiled list does not yet exist, it will in a few days they have said.  So concerning immediate refugee shelters and aide, these are the contacts currently suggested by Belgian organisations, other than the Belgian UN Refugee Agency branch (UNHCR), of course: - https://help.unhcr.org/belgium/en/where-to-seek-help/reception-accommodation/

Czechia
The Czech Chamber of Architects, in cooperation with the OnPlan design office, has launched the ‘Design with Us / ПРОЄКТУЙ З НАМИ’ initiative with the aim of involving refugees with education in architecture, construction, urban planning and other related fields in the work process.

 

Through the website, it is possible to offer work to your colleagues in the field of architecture, urban planning or construction, which was affected by the war in Ukraine. We receive as well requests from Ukrainian professionals and students who are willing to work remotely from Ukraine.

 

You can fill out the questionnaire and your company or institution can become a place for professional growth and a source of financial security for Ukrainians.

 

The websites: projektujsnami.cz/en/

 

Denmark
Architectural firms can offer Ukrainian refugees work, internships or, for example, office space for architects, designers and others working in the creative industries via the National Institute for Architecture and Urban Planning's (NIAiU) database in Poland. Danske Arkitektvirksomheder is in dialogue with Akademisk Arkitektforening and FAOD to uncover the possibilities for how you as an architect and architectural firm can help. In addition, we follow the initiatives that are put in place by our international sister organizations via ACE and UIA. Need for work  Denmark has quickly come out with a desire to open the door for Ukrainian refugees with a special law that gives them a work permit. This will make it possible to help Ukrainian architects in employment.  We therefore recommend - like the Association of Architects - for the time being our members to use the database established by The National Institute for Architecture and Urban Planning (NIAiU) in Poland. This calls for work, telework, internships or, for example, office space for architects, designers and others who work in the creative industries. During the first weeks, they have received around 360 inquiries, from people who have either lost their jobs in Ukraine, fled to Poland or are traveling through Poland to move on to find work in other countries.

The Union of Architects and Designers, (Forbundet Arkitekter og Designere, FAOD) is a professional association in Denmark with special insight into the careers and working lives of academic architects and designers. As a special initiative in relation to architects and designers from Ukraine, they have decided to offer a membership for a symbolic amount of five Danish kroner a month (a little less than one Euro). 
As a member, you will be able to use all our membership offers, including an individual “New in Denmark meeting”, career coaching and a range of English-spoken events and curses.  See more about othis organisation here:  https://faod.dk/english/  See vacancies for architects and designers here:  https://faod.dk/jobportal/  and  https://www.danskeark.dk/search?type%5Bjob_page%5D=job_page

 

Finland
Help for victims of the war in Ukraine: website launched 
They are also looking for volunteers with knowledge of Russian or Ukrainian to join Safa’s network  
Ukrainian architects have been deprived of the opportunity to practice their profession in their native country, and a large number of unemployed colleagues have already fled to countries across Europe. While most flee to the neighbouring countries, there is also a constant flow of Ukrainians to Finland.  Would your office / workplace be willing to provide project-based work for an architect fleeing the war, or a remote job opportunity for a person residing in another country, an internship for an architecture student, or a remote workstation and tools?  The Association of Finnish Architects (ATL) and Safa have launched a webpage for information on jobs and offers of work space at www.safa.fi/help  Five offices shave already registered with the service. You can also help by sharing information about safa.fi/ help on your networks / social media channels! Would you like to serve as a support person?  Do you know Russian or Ukrainian, and would you be willing to act as a support person for colleagues coming to Finland from Ukraine? Assistance provided by a person speaking the same language is invaluable for someone entering a new culture. Such assistance may consist of interpreting or help with practical matters, such as housing and work.  Volunteers, please contact: pia.selroos(at)safa(dot)fi
#1hourforukraine campaign continues 
Have you already joined the #1hourforukraine campaign? The idea is simple: donate an amount equivalent to the hourly pay of each employee at your workplace to a charity that supports Ukraine.  We invite all our member firms and offices, partners and the entire property and construction sector to get involved. Thanks to Studio Puisto for launching the campaign!  CLICK HERE to see a list of charities.  Use the tag #1hourforukraine on social media and spread the challenge!  Click here to download an image compatible with your app for your campaign post. 

France
Below is the text form France (AMO) Ordre des Architects  
LET'S HELP OUR UKRAINIAN COLLEAGUES, LET'S WELCOME THEM IN OUR STRUCTURES!  War is knocking on our doors. The brutality of Russian aggression cannot leave us unmoved and we naturally stand by Ukraine and its heroic resistance. In addition to the damage on the ground, the shattered lives, and the nuclear threat, thousands of people are fleeing the fighting. More than 500,000 yesterday, and many more tomorrow.  A few months ago, the AMO Prize was exhibited abroad for the first time. In Ukraine, in fact. In the beautiful city of Lviv, its architecture festival welcomed us to discuss the issues of heritage and contemporary architecture.  Today, we invite you to welcome architects, artists, project owners, engineers, students, city actors, communicators, photographers, administrators... in your structures. Launched this weekend, this call for solidarity from the city's actors has already collected a number of contributions and job proposals for these Ukrainian refugees: thank you to the architects, planners, institutions, etc. who have already come forward.  We need to coordinate these steps, with complementary actions for travel and emergency accommodation in the first instance. But it is important for these people to be able to rebuild their lives, before rebuilding their country.  We suggest that you take part in this solidarity movement initiated by AMO and joined by AFEX, and send us your contact details, the type of potential job offered and we will try to make the link with the profiles received on the Ukrainian side. 
THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS MESSAGE!

Together with Sabina Grincevičiutė we created an online document “Ukrainian architects looking for a job in Lithuania” and are filling in all the applicants that contacted Processoffice and DO Architects in search for the job. The volumes are really large and in an attempt to help everyone somehow, we invite you to use this document for other offices and studios that may offer work to architects, interior designers and others in the field. Job seekers include both freelancers and those seeking smaller and larger offices to collaborate. We invite you to share the link with Ukrainians who apply to other offices so that they can fill in their details. We will also share this document and invite you to share it with private clients. Most people look for a job at a distance, so it is possible to share not only with Lithuanian offices and clients.

Разом із Sabina Grincevičiutė ми створили онлайн-документ «Українські архітектори шукають роботу в Литві» та заповнюємо всіх кандидатів, які звернулися до Processoffice та DO Architects у пошуках роботи. Обсяги дійсно великі, і, намагаючись якось допомогти кожному, ми запрошуємо вас використовувати цей документ для інших офісів і студій, які можуть запропонувати роботу архітекторам, дизайнерам інтер’єрів та іншим у цій галузі. Серед тих, хто шукає роботу, є як фрілансери, так і ті, хто шукає менші та більші офіси для співпраці. Запрошуємо поділитися посиланням з українцями, які звертаються до інших офісів, щоб вони могли заповнити свої дані. Ми також поділимося цим документом і запросимо вас поділитися ним із приватними клієнтами. Більшість людей шукають роботу на відстані, тому можна поділитися не лише з литовськими офісами та клієнтами.

Слава Україні!

Sweden

Architects Sweden raise their voice against Putin’s war at manifestations every Wednesday at 12.30 in
front of the Russian Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden. On Wednesday April 6 our President Emina Kovacic contributed with a speech against the war. Kovacic expressed that the community of architects in Sweden is deeply concerned about the destruction of the cities of Ukraine and the targeting of cultural heritage sites and civilian buildings.In response to President Zelenskyj’s call for support from Sweden and particularly architects in Sweden on March 25 she addresses the trust embodied in architecture and the need to build hope for the future by planning for a reconstruction.

Architects Sweden is supporting fund raising by UNHCR for Ukraine. In relation to the yearly Architecture Award Ceremony Arkitekturgalan we endorse a targeted support for the reception of students of architecture at the Academy of Arts in Vilnius. The program for architecture is at the frontier with Ukraine and help many students. They can help more if they receive donations for accommodations and temporary scholarships.

The National Board of Antiquities is organizing rescue operations of archives in Ukraine and are open to include architecture drawing archives with the Swedish architecture and design archive ArkDes –Sweden’s National Centre for Architecture and Design. Through the international aid organization Union-to-Union Architects Sweden has a potential presence in Ukraine to support the National Union of Architects of Ukraine. Among the refugees there will also be architects. In the short term we are planning to organize workshops on the modern cultural heritage and the future reconstruction of cities affected by war in Ukraine in cooperation with Arkdes and local art galleries. This will act as a venue for Ukrainian architects to meet Swedish architects for a constructive professional dialogue on the situation in Ukraine.

Swedish Architects offer a temporary membership for qualified architects from Ukraine on a tentative assessment of diplomas and is engaging in practical worklife introduction programs for architects with a foreign education.

Message from Gabi Kaltenyte:
I am a lecturer at a university in Copenhagen, Denmark, teaching Architecture and BIM courses. I specialize in teaching Revit, and would like to offer free training to Ukrainians fleeing Ukraine that maybe need to learn Revit in order to get a wider variaty of jobs in Europe, but still in their field. 

I know more people that would be interested in giving free courses, so a lot could be organized.
