Recommendation 1: In order to increase the project relevance – to differentiate the message about the project more in depth (about the possibility of training by attending online courses) in terms of information channels and information content for the following social and professional groups: 1.1. Large and medium business (in context of this project, medium business should be differentiated from small business because their motivation differs). 1.2. Small business; 1.3. Socially vulnerable groups. 1.4. Women. 1.5. Civil servants. 1.6. Local authority officials.


Recommendation 2: In 6-12 months after the project completion, to evaluate project impact, including by using course students’ feedback provided on Prometheus and Maidan Open University education platforms. Based on the whole scope of feedback, to propose supplements and amendments to the courses and to implement these changes in the course of the project.


Recommendation 3: In order to better factor in the needs of vulnerable groups and address gender issues, the following can be done: 1. Differentiate information channels informing about the possibility to complete training on the sustainable development goals: Inform non-governmental organizations that help vulnerable groups, as well as women organizations. It is necessary to become partners with leading organizations of these two types in case of project continuation. 2. When informing representatives of vulnerable groups and women about the project – to base information module on the idea of equitableness, achievement of which is the objective of the sustainable development goals, as well as to highlight that the SDGs are designed to improve the quality of life (see first recommendation). 3. To develop and use information and motivation modules (messages) for differentiated vulnerable groups: 3.1. Internally displaced persons. 3.2. Hostilities area residents. 3.3. Individuals with low income. 3.4. Other groups that will be identified based on the project impact evaluation.


Recommendation 4: In case of project continuation – to retain the project team and project partners, while also to expand the number of partners by involving organizations that will ensure informing of differentiated target groups (non-profit organizations, professional associations, municipal organizations).


Recommendation 5: To scale the project in two main ways: 1. To expand the project within the territory of Ukraine, wherefor to carry out an awareness raising campaign aimed at differentiated target groups informing about the possibility of training by attending online courses. 2. To expand the project abroad, wherefor to make subtitles (translation) of two courses into English and Russian, and possibly into other languages in the future. These two courses, that are not closely related to Ukrainian legislation, are designed for social activists and business.


Recommendation 6: Differentiated and focused on narrow target groups information campaigns of the project aimed at dissemination of information about the possibility to complete training attending online courses would improve the project efficiency (improving expenses /created value ratio). Such campaigns may be carried out with minimal costs.


Recommendation 7: In order to improve project’s sustainability in case of its continuation, it is appropriate to arrange cooperation with long-established sustainable organizations. Such organizations include business associations, municipal associations, centres for supporting non-profit organizations, including regional. Inclusion of such organizations into partners of the project in case of its continuation will provide for long-term sustainable results.
