X Ukrainian World Congress was held on 20-22 August in Lviv
The X World Congress of Ukrainians took place on 20-22 August 2013 at the Lviv Polytechnic National University under this year’s Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) motto “Contra spem spero”. These words, penned by renowned Ukrainian poet Lesia Ukrainka, symbolize the faith of the 20-million strong diaspora in Ukraine’s better future despite the many challenges that lie ahead.
Delegates representing UWC member organizations active in 33 countries and representatives of the 14 countries in which the UWC has ties will participate in the work of the X World Congress of Ukrainians, together with interested Ukrainians from both Ukraine and the diaspora.
The X World Congress of Ukrainians was organized in Lviv with the assistance of the Lviv Polytechnic National University and its International Institute of Education, Culture and Diaspora Relations, and the Lviv Municipal Administration.
