Pledge for Ukraine
Although our conference has aimed to and remains apolitical, inviting people from different sides of the political spectrum, and while the recent developments in Ukraine are beyond the scope of our conference, our countries are deeply connected and we would like to express our solidarity with Ukraine, and its citizens - those still in Ukraine, those living in our countries, as well as fellow students, staff and colleagues at the University.
We have decided to donate all the proceeds from the conference raised from ticket purchases to Človek v ohrození (the Slovak equivalent of People in Need), a charity supporting Ukrainians through safe accommodation, food and water as well as other forms of support. Whilst there might be little that we can do, this is our small share of trying to help. You can find more ways to help in the comments.
