WINDOW ON AMERICA PILOT PROJECT
WASHINGTON, DC (February 13, 2012) - The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation, a member
of the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy (USCCD), helped launch a pilot project,
a series of monthly discussions between Americans and Ukrainians via three
Window on America Centers in Donetsk, Lutsk, and Vinnytsia, Ukraine, in cooperation
with the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Embassy in Kyiv and USCCD.
The main goal of the project is to enable a broader spectrum of Americans and Ukrainians to engage in informal and expert discussions using modern Internet technologies on topics of mutual interest, thereby increasing the mutual understanding of Ukrainian and American cultures.
The Window on America pilot project, with the support of the U.S.-Ukraine
Foundation, will be continues through June 2012. Oksana Yakovenko at the
USUF is responsible for identifying expert speakers and working with U.S.
Embassy staff and Window on America coordinators.
The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation is proud to be a part this pilot project!
