Ukraine has embarked on its path to European future, developing democratic society and embracing the values of pluralism, equality and human rights. Education, language proficiency and cultural links need to be strengthened: they are a vital component in solidifying Ukraine’s European identity on its move closer to the European Union. Language plays a significant role in individual’s identity construction, and affects how citizens see the world and interact in it. If Ukraine is to deepen its cooperation and expand its cultural, political and social links with the EU and the outside world, barriers in communication need to be eliminated. For this, improving foreign languages learning is crucial. Any organization or individual is welcome to join the Charter by publicly supporting the Initiative’s purpose and goals and by contributing own action plan to advance the goals of УS. All activities and projects proposed by stakeholders and supporters shall combine УS national action plan. Go Global as УS champion and one of the partners embraces the function of promoting the Charter to attract more participants, facilitating activities of Україна Speaking national action plan, coordinating and providing communication support, keeping record of and reporting on all УS activities. The Concerted joint action is the only way to facilitate the system-level change.
