The Bohdan Hawrylyshyn Family Foundation, Youth delegates to UN from Ukraine and partners from other civil society organizations invites you to attend the event about human responsibilities as the core to democracies’ birth and survival. The event will take place on Monday, December 6, from 8:00 to 9:00 AM EST.
This year the Parliament of Ukraine adopted a national Human Responsibility Day and it was celebrated all over the country by school children, young people from different regions, businesses, communities, local governments etc.
We see our global mission in establishing the International Human Responsibility Day celebrated every year on October 19th. So by this event we start a campaign and plan to engage youth, local governments to highlight and enhance global change through local transformation. Support the initiative of appearing on such days in your country and contribute to this important global initiative!
Join our event to discuss the basics of Human Responsibility Day, the experience of Ukraine in establishing such a day and the impact for democracy.
