Explore Ukraine like Fridtjof Nansen

  • 19.05.2019 - 18.07.2019

Norwegian-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce would like to invite you to join the campaign “Explore Ukraine like Fridtjof Nansen” aimed to promote Ukraine as a tourist destination among Norwegians through social media and study trips to Kyiv, Lviv and Odesa. 

When? May 19 – July 18th

Where? Facebook and Instagram

Why to join? Every picture you post will collect 1 NOK/UAH and donated to Ukraїner – a new media project aimed to discover through a thorough research who Ukrainian actually are and share these discoveries via a modern guide to Ukraine, translated into multiple languages.

Who is Nansen? Fridtjof Nansen was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, who during his lifetime became a legend. Many consider him to be one of the greatest men Norway has ever had. He visited Ukraine in 1923 and was supporting Ukrainians in difficult times providing humanitarian assistance. We believe that every Norwegian can become a Nansen!

How to participate?

  • Post a picture on Facebook or Instagram from your holiday in Ukraine (any time, any place in the country). 
  • Use the hashtag #OpplevUkraina.
  • Tag @nucc_activities on Instagram or Norwegian-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce on Facebook and tell why you would recommend to visit the place to your friend.

Three lucky participants of the flashmob chosen via random.org in the end of the flashmob will receive prizes from NUCC!

You can also become a sponsor of the campaign or share it on your webpage.
