Travel to the Emerge Gathering Kyiv 2019

Information for participants of the Emerge Gathering 2019


9.9.2019
Many people have been in touch to ask about transport to the gathering and we're really happy to hear that some of you are looking for alternative ways to travel other than by plane.

We are living in urgent times, and with Greta Thunberg sailing into New York last week to take part in the UN climate summit it seems that the world is waking up to the environmental impact of flying.

As the African proverb often quoted by Bayo Akomolafe says, "the times are urgent, let us slow down." We appreciate that it's not always financially or practically possible to travel the 'slow way', but for those of you that can we encourage you to consider this option. Not only is it more environmentally friendly, but who knows who you might connect with, or what will emerge, along the way.

We have created this Facebook group to help you to coordinate and cocreate your journey with fellow travellers.

Below are some suggested routes to Kyiv from Berlin, Stockholm and London. All approx. prices are for return tickets.

We look forward to greeting you soon!

The Emerge Gathering Team.
