stract and too difficult to understand from afar.

We will aim convey the true intensity, political reality, and positive and negative emotions of the war on Ukraine. We will also discuss the global political and economic implications of the war and outline possible future scenarios.

The conference will have four panels: global security, economy, energy security, and food security. The speakers and the audience are top Ukrainian and international officials, academics, business people, and policymakers.

The charity dinner followed by a charity auction will celebrate the resilience and the spirit of the Ukrainian people. It will feature Ukrainians who will share their stories of overcoming the challenges of the war, resisting the Russian invasion, and maintaining and developing a democracy during a war.
