"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." ― Albert Einstein once said. Thus, we decided to gather seven young and uncorrupt active citizens who want to share their stories of how an average Ukrainian (spoiler: not only Ukrainian) can fight corruption in their daily life.
Come to see the fierce battle of those who resisted corruption's challenge! Although it is a competition, all of the participants are fighting for the sake of the bright and transparent future of Ukraine. To ensure the fair competition, we invited judges who have firsthand experience making a meaningful TED talk or who deal with anti-corruption every Monday to Friday, and sometimes on the weekend, too ;)
Change Talks judges:
Olga Yurkova, Ukraine’s first global TED speaker
Peter Jarosz, United States Department of Justice Legal Advisor in Ukraine
Richard Roman, Program Development and Communication Consultant at SACCI
Matthew A. Thoresen, Senior Criminal Justice Advisor for the U.S. Embassy's International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Section
Join us and witness the birth of the new Corruption Fighter whose story will open minds and change the world!
WARNING! All the stories heard at the event may inspire positive action in your communities and wake up many more super-people ;)
Visitors to the event will also have a chance to explore and participate in the exhibit “Ukraine without Corruption,” a continuation of the dialogue that began with the Corruption Park - an interactive project created by the European Union Anti-Corruption Initiative (EUACI), which is financed by EU and co-financed and implemented by DANIDA. Through a joint effort between America House and the EUACI, the project now continues at America House Kyiv, this time with the addition of youth voices. The exhibit includes digital stories of personal experiences overcoming corruption created by alumni of the U.S. Department of State’s FLEX Program.

Please remember to bring your passport or driver's license to enter America House.
