Speechless, yeah, malam ini aku benar-benar speechless ! bagaimana tidak, sebuah kiriman email tak terduga datang dari ISAwalnya aku iseng-iseng buka grup facebook PPSDMS V, yaitu grup temen-temen beswan Program Pembinaan Sumber Daya Manusia Strategis Nurul Fikri. aku memang hobi cek info grup-grup tersebut untuk meningkatkan motivasi diri. Karena setiap postingan pasti bermanfaat. entah itu hanya sekedar sharing-sharing pengalaman temen yang ada di luar negeri atau info-info kompetisi dan konferensi nasional dan internasional. malam itu, ada sebuah postingan yang menarik perhatian saya. yaitu sebuah konferensi international di Ukraina yang bertemakan Economy for Ecology.
Ukraine is an independent sovereign state. Though, many people think that our country is a part of Russian Federation. It is a big mistake - Ukraine isn't a part of Russia. Ukraine supports friendly relations with Russia.
Ukraine is a neighbor of European Union. It has a status of a country with a market economy. Our government is implementing a special developed program to enter the WTO.
You can see our national clothes at the picture. By the way, take the national clothes of your country (if it is possible) for International Party which will be held during ISCS'2011!
Ukraine is known all over the world by:
- Orange Revolution
- Chornobyl Zone
- Zaporizka Sich
- Carpathian mountains are famous among European tourists
- Andriy Shevchenko (football player of Chelsea)
- Vladimir and Vitaliy Klichko (the boxers)
- Singer Ruslana, the winner of Evrovision 2005
- The conference ISCS "Economics for Ecology"
In Ukraine people speak Ukrainian (it is our national language) and Russian. Lots of people know and speak English (mostly youth).
Our national currency is called "HRIVNA" (1 $ ≈ 8 hrivna, 1 euro ≈ 11 hrivna)
- Take some cash with you, because the system of electronic payments is not so widely spread in our country;
- Change money only in Banks;
- You can use only International Banking Cards (MasterCard and Visa International).
The symbol of the city is "ALTANKA". You should visit it! Besides, there are a lot of interesting historical and modern places. You can see them at the pictures!
Sumy is famous for it's nature. It is so beautiful especial in spring, when the nature awakes. You'll have a chance to admire the beauty of the nature during our conference, because some events will take place in the forest near the river.
There are such higher educational establishments in Sumy as Sumy State University, Sumy National Agriculture University, Sumy State Pedagogical University, Ukrainian National Academy of Banking and lots of small departments from other cities. Our conference is organized on the base of Sumy State University. This university has highly developed international relations. Our students take part in many International conferences regularly. By the way students from 40 countries study in Sumy.
The food in Ukraine is similar to European food. But we have also specifically national Ukrainian dishes here in Ukraine. For example, such as:
- Ukrainian Borsch with pampushky.
