WASHINGTON, D.C.- You are invited to attend an in-person conference on rebuilding Ukraine, "Building Already!", organized by "hromadske", media outlet, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary in Kyiv, Ukraine. The conference will take place on Wednesday, June 7, at the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE), Mykoly Shpaka St, 3, Kyiv, Ukraine, 02000. 11 am-5 pm Kyiv time.
What new reality awaits us and the world after the war? How to live after the victory and what challenges to prepare for?
On Wednesday, June 7, hromadske will hold four panel discussions with several experts and opinion leaders in Kyiv. The in-person conference will be in Ukrainian with translation into English. Some speakers will make their presentations in English which will be translated into Ukrainian.
(1) SECURITY. NEW LIFE WITH AN OLD NEIGHBOR
Discussion of the model of long-term "coexistence" with Russia and Belarus after the cessation of active hostilities, ways to build defense and effective models of preventing aggression, as well as the role of Ukraine as a deterrent to Russia's imperial ambitions in Europe.
De-mining of Ukraine’s territories will be the mail focus of this panel, as about 30% of Ukraine's territory is contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance.
(2) TRANSPARENCY. NEW UKRAINE WITHOUT OLD SCHEMES
After the victory, Ukraine will receive large amounts of money from partners and business representatives for reconstruction. Currently, there are no mechanisms in place to control the targeted use of these funds and to prevent their theft. That is why working groups are already being set up to develop transparency and accountability tools.
(3) PEOPLE. AT THE HEART AND CENTER OF EVERYTHING
Reconstruction should be primarily focused on people, their safety, comfort, and development. This panel will focus on new education system, rebuilding schools and hospitals according to European standards, and mechanisms for returning people who were forced to flee from abroad.
(4) BRAND. I'M UKRAINIAN
For more than a year now, Ukraine has been at the top of the news, and the level of support is extremely high. But how Ukraine can maintain this admiration after the victory? New communication strategy for promoting the Ukrainian brand in the international information space must be designed right now.
Speakers and moderators of the Building Already conference include:
Mustafa Nayem, Head of the State Agency on Recovery and Development of Ukraine
Mykhailo Fedorov, Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine
Ole Egberg Mikkelsen, Ambassador of Denmark to Ukraine
Oleksandra Azarkhina, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure
Oksen Lisovyi, Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine
Oleksandra Matviichuk, Head of Center for Civil Liberties, Nobel Prize Laureate
Daria Kaleniuk, CEO of Anti-corruption Action Center
