UKRAINE DISCOVERY TOUR

Ukraine

The Revolution of Dignity transformed the minds and values of Ukrainians. Still, Ukraine’s challenge is to turn the vast human and intellectual potential into economic and social value. Over the past few years, Ukraine has gone through painful, although necessary transformations, building its path to recovery and economic growth. In this critical time for Ukraine and whole Eastern Europe, catch the momentum to discover Ukraine, its potential, opportunities and fellow leaders.

Kyiv Hub together with Ukrainian YGLs prepared a very special and unique tour to Ukraine. This is not an official WEF program, it is a privately organized YGLs and GSs Trip. Ukraine Discovery Tour is open to YGLs with a small number of places available to selected group of the Global Shapers members. The event took place on 2 - 6 of June 2016 in Kyiv.

The agenda included meetings with the business leaders, investors, social activist, media, IT guru and other extraordinary and unique people in different spheres and industries, as well as Workshops and Session on doing business in Ukraine. We were willing to show a private side of the country ordinarily missed by visiting delegations as well as we continue the work the WEF started with the Geneva Ukraine Initiative.
