The opening ceremony was attended by about 1,000 guests, including 17 UN agencies, ambassadors, high-ranking officials, Ukrainian celebrities and youth
Presenting her exposition, the artist touched upon the problems of raising the level of water in the oceans, drying of rivers and lakes, as well as the lack of drinking water in the world. According to Olga Kondratska, this is what inspired her to create a thematic collection of works in order to attract the attention of the international community to the current global problem of water resources.
Also during the celebration there was a photo exhibition and video “Be on the Change” (“Be the Change”), which was attended by 18 Ukrainian stars. The main idea of the campaign is to promote and achieve 17 Sustainable Development Goals for Ukrainians. During the event, the stars who participated in the information campaign shared their personal motivation to achieve the Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a kind of call to action to which all UN Member States – the poor, the disadvantaged and the developing world – are involved. 193 countries are deploying their forces to achieve the 17 Goals. Ukraine has recently set its Global Goals as its highest priority, following the signing by the President of Ukraine of Ukraine of the Decree “On Sustainable Development Goals of Ukraine for the Period up to 2030” of September 30, 2019.
