In addition to the main events at the conference site, Mystetskyi Arsenal, YES has also partnered with several other organizations to stage side events, some of them off-site. These nightcap and early bird discussions will provide guests to discuss topics in which they are especially interested in a more relaxed format. Events held in other locations also provide greater access to YES speakers and their expertise for other audiences in addition to the main conference participants. Last but not least, they offer participants an opportunity to get a feel for Kyiv’s urban landscape by getting out of the meeting venue and exploring some of the city’s cafés and bars.
Yalta European Strategy (YES) is introducing nightcap events for the participants of the 14th YES Annual Meeting to wind down at the end of the first conference day and to discuss topics of their choice in an informal atmosphere. The nightcaps are organized in partnership with Global Office, International Renaissance Foundation and Hennadiy Udovenko Diplomatic Academy MFA of Ukraine.
Rasmussen Global, in cooperation with Victor Pinchuk Foundation and Yalta European Strategy, will present a recent study on the prospects and impact of Ukraine joining a Customs Union (CU) with the EU.
At the occasion of the 14th YES Annual Meeting Victor Pinchuk Foundation presents two public lectures by artist Marina Abramovic and the 68th Secretary of State of the United States John Kerry. Ukrainian students, scholars and opinion-makers will take part at the lectures. By organizing such a dialogue between world leaders, experts and Ukrainian students, the Foundation contributes to fostering a new generation of responsible leaders.
