День Украины - обзоры главных событий и новостей.


The International Community Organization Global Ukraine was the organizer of the Forum. This is a network of younger Ukrainian expats, who have international experience and an international perspective. Following the Revolution of Dignity in 2014, Ukrainian expats became active public diplomats, representing Ukraine's interest internationally. They set up Global Ukraine, which coordinates the efforts of communities and volunteer groups of the Ukrainian diaspora around the world.

Together they have developed a strategy for cultural and business diplomacy, and are working with various Ukrainian government ministries.

"Reforms are not just initiated in parliament or government, but also through the establishment of new institutions and the launching of joint global projects such as those, which our network initiated in the first year of its activities," said Forum co-founder and initiator Violeta Moskalu.

Gennadiy Maksak, the head of the Board of the Ukrainian Prism Foreign Policy Group (analytical center in the area of foreign policy and international security), defined the possible types of cooperation between government agencies and Global Ukrainians:

participation in the development of strategies and program documents,

creating plans of action and monitoring the implementation of strategic plans,

participation in the development of plans to popularize Ukraine in the world,

developing a multifaceted approach to monitoring information about Ukraine, and preparing counter-measures.

Olha Zhuk, head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs division of cultural diplomacy, set out the priorities of the ministry in cultural diplomacy for the next year, including the creation of a cultural site, which will assist in the promotion of culture, a calendar of events outside of Ukraine, a list of projects, and a partner search site.

The Third Forum brought together almost 250 participants from various countries (USA, Canada, Australia, and Japan, the EU, Asia and the Arab world). The organization presented its key projects:

Global Ukraine News. This new informational agency is aimed at providing true information about Ukraine to the world. According to community activist and political analyst Kateryna Kruk, Global Ukrainians are a major source of information about Ukraine: "The biggest problem of working with embassies is in the speed of their reaction. Very often, the media do not report quickly about events. The role of Global Ukrainian is to provide this news quickly in their centers. Global Ukrainians can say more than official representatives!"

In addition, the Forum examined the possibility of setting up a site to monitor the work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Business Hub. The Forum announced the establishment of the Business Hub, which will develop innovative programs to promote Ukrainian exports to various countries and specifically to North and South America, the EU, Asia, Australia and Africa.

Global Ukraine Academy. Continuing the work to establish an innovative on line university, Global Academy of Reforms, which will bring together Ukrainian academics from recognized international universities to meet with Ukrainian students and community leaders from various countries (Brussels, Strasbourg, London, Berlin, Washington, Boston, New York, San Francisco, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Mexico, Johannesburg, Sidney, etc.).

Emphasis was also placed on the role of Global Ukrainians in promoting contemporary Ukrainian arts.

In summarizing the two day Forum, Violeta Moscalu stated: "In the first year of its activities, the Global Ukrainians network has become a player in promoting Ukraine's interests abroad; this resource is extremely important, it can't be ignored. The network provides the government and various ministries with ready working models, strategy proposals, which can be discussed publicly. Our aim - to adopt this joint concept for the development of public diplomacy through Global Ukrainians and to coordinate a joint plan of events to strength the relationship between government and community initiatives."

A resolution was adopted at the end of the Forum, which will be sent to various ministries and to the government together with the strategy for the development of public diplomacy. Representatives of all public institutions and experts from the community sector are invited to participate, by providing their comments and recommendations by 10 September 2016 (
