This year marks 10 years since the beginning of the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity. In late November 2013, thousands of Ukrainians gathered to protest against the Ukrainian government’s move away from an EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The revolution changed the course of Ukrainian history, its conclusion marked by a loss of 100 lives, a change in government, and the occupation of Crimea.
Reflect with us on a decade of transformation since the revolution, a moment when people chose to sacrifice their lives for the freedom and dignity of others.
During the discussion, we will reflect on:
- The power of the people in transforming the Ukrainian nation
- Standing up for human values: from ideas to global action
- Ukraine’s 10-year journey in opposing tyranny
- Perspectives from Ukrainians and Danes on lessons from the past
- Envisioning a future that matters for humanists worldwide
- Dr. Volodymyr Yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher, journalist, writer, and Analytics Director at Internews Ukraine
- Dr. Tetyana Ogarkova, Head of International Outreach at Ukraine Crisis Media Center, Co-Author of KultPodcast
- Charlotte Flindt Pedersen, President of Danish Foreign Policy Society
- Johannes Wamberg Andersen, historian, long-time resident in Ukraine
Moderator: Jonas Parello Plesner, Director, Alliance of Democracies
