About this event

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a watershed moment for European security, with important implications for the transatlantic relationship. The war will impact the young generation in particular, who will face the daunting task of reimagining and rebuilding the European security order. After a short kick-off by our two Ukrainian speakers -- one from the Ukrainian diaspora in the European Union and another on the ground in the Poltava region  , we invite members of GMF’s different chapters of the Young Transatlantic Network of Future Leaders (YTN) to connect with their peers from other European countries and the U.S. to exchange perspectives on the war.

How is Russia’s war on Ukraine perceived by young people in your country, and how are they taking action? Does this differ from older generations? What do you think should happen next in transatlantic cooperation?

If you have any questions, please reach out to Gesine Weber ([email protected]), Matthew Delmastro ([email protected]) or Alexandria Chastenet de Gery ([email protected]).
