ViVaVostok is the result of a cooperation between the International Youth Library and the Robert Bosch Stiftung. From 2012 to 2017, the funding program of the same name supported innovative literary events that presented literature from Central and Eastern Europe to their audiences.

Under the motto "Long live the East!", ViVaVostok draws attention to exciting new picture and children's books and novels for young people from Poland, Slovenia and the Ukraine on its own homepage, on facebook and on instagram, introduces illustrators and children's book authors from the Czech Republic, the Baltic States and Georgia, and provides an insight into the young book markets in Central and Eastern Europe.
