Slovakia-Ukraine Local Solidarity Forum
Join us on 9 June, from 10:00 to 12:00 CEST, for a lively online exchange on how to keep the momentum and support Ukrainian municipalities which are a backbone of the national resistance. Taking place online, the event will be conducted in English, Ukrainian and Slovak with simultaneous interpretation in three languages.
The Slovakia-Ukraine Local Solidarity Forum is jointly organised by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), PLATFORMA, the Association of Towns and Communities of Slovakia and the U-LEAD with Europe Programme. It will provide a unique space for dialogue and fostering cooperation among local authorities from Ukraine and Slovakia.
The aim of this local solidarity forum between Slovakia and Ukraine will be to:
- Highlight specific challenges of war time local governance from the ground in Ukraine;
- Present best examples of local support by Slovakia, the challenges that were encountered and addressed;
- Encourage creation of new municipal partnerships between Slovakia and Ukraine.
