Voices from Ukraine #7

May 14, 2024 at 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Engaging the West: A guide on how to rhetorically defend Ukraine

Returning for its 7th edition, we are pleased to announce LYMEC's next Voices from Ukraine event.

This online session will examine the current dynamics surrounding the West’s lacklustre and eroding support for Ukraine. Specifically, it will explore how rhetoric can both weaken Ukraine's survival, whereas if used correctly, it can have an empowering effect capable of boosting Ukraine’s fight-back effort. In seeking to explore the communication tools, strategies and techniques to ensure Western governments remain committed to Ukraine’s liberation battle, the event will also address these guiding questions:

  1. How can young leaders challenge notions that Ukraine is “bound to fail”?
  2. What communication tools and strategies are most effective when pushing a pro-Ukraine message?
  3. What is the best way to pressure European governments of the need to (tangibly) support Ukraine?

Join us on 14 May 2024 from 18:00 to 19:30 CEST (Brussels time) to hear from our exciting speaker line-up, have your say and share ideas and opinions with other young liberals!

More information will be available closer to the event! The link to connect will be sent out to the International Officers (IOs) of our member organisations and the Individual Members (IMS) representatives.
