#1 POVERTY


Budgets will be redirected from social programsfor the needs of the war and the restoration of infrastructure after its end. Furthermore, this war will create thousands of refugees, unemployed and wounded, requiring significant financial investments in rehabilitation.

#2HUNGER &FOOD PRICES RISE


Ukraine & Russia are responsible for 1/3 of global wheat supply and have top positions in provision of some other crops, vegetable oils and food categories.

#5THE WAR IN THE HEART  OF EUROPE INCREASES GENDER INEQUALITY


#6OPEN WATER SOURCES & GROUNDWATERS  IN THE HEART OF EUROPE COULD BE CONTAMINATED

Floodwaters will dissolve heavy metals like mercury, lead, and arsenic and contaminate groundwater.Spreading of nuclear dust from Chornobyl zone by Russian soldiers alone leads to further groundwater contamination by radioactive particles.

#7WAR COULD CAUSE DELAY IN TRANSITION TO RENEWABLE ENERGY



FOR NOW, SOME WIND, SOLAR, AND SMALL HYDRO PLANTS ALREADY DAMAGED BY RUSSIAN MILITARY IN UKRAINE.

#8MILLIONS OF PEOPLE COULD LOSE WORK



GAS PRICES & INFLATION SKYROCKET.ENERGY MARKETS COULD  BE REBUILT WITH TURNING BACK TO "DIRTY" ENERGY. YET, IT ALSO CAN BE A CHANCE FOR FURTHER CLEAN ENERGY TRANSITION.

GOVERNMENTS AND BUSINESSES COULD PRIORITIZE SURVIVAL.INNOVATION IMPLEMENTATION COULD BE PAUSED

#10WAR INCREASES INEQUALITY


ALLOWING RUSSIAN AUTOCRACY  TO  SWALLOW THE TERRITORY OF A SOVEREIGN STATE  BUILT ON EUROPEAN DEMOCRATIC VALUES COULD CAUSE A GENOCIDE IN THE HEART OF EUROPE

KYIV, ONE OF THE CRADLES OF EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION, FOUNDED BACK IN 482 AD, AND THE SEVENTH BY POPULATION CITY IN EUROPE, TODAY SUFFERS MULTIPLE DESTRUCTION FROM SHELLING BY THE RUSSIAN MILITARY

PEOPLE RARELY THINK ABOUT RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND MANUFACTURING IN TERMS OF SURVIVAL






FURTHERMORE, THE WAR IN THE HEART OF EUROPE LEADS TO THE USE OF WASTEFUL AND POLLUTING METHODS OF PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION

THEY MAY NOT SURVIVE THE POLLUTION CAUSED BY WAR

#15
WAR LEAVES NO CHANCES TO SURVIVE FOR THE WILD NATURE





UNIQUE EUROPEAN ECOSYSTEMS, RARE ANIMAL AND PLANT SPECIES LIVING ONLY HERE ARE AT A STAKE

#16
THE FULL-SCALE  INVASION OF THE RUSSIAN MILITARY INTO AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY SHOWS THE WEAKNESS OF THE GLOBAL INSTITUTIONS






FURTHERMORE, UKRAINE USED TO BE A NUCLEAR COUNTRY THAT GAVE UP NUCLEAR WEAPONS UNDER INSURANCE OF PROTECTION GIVEN BY THE UK, UNITED STATES, FRANCE, AND CHINA. ALL OF THEM SIGNED THE BUDAPEST MEMORANDUM  ON SECURITY ASSURANCES.  HOWEVER, THAT DID NOT PROTECT UKRAINE.PEACE IN THE WORLD IS UNACHIEVABLE WITHOUT FULL PROTECTION OF THE UKRAINIAN SOVEREIGNTY & TERRITORY

#17
EVEN THOUGH LOTS CAN BE DONE AT LOCAL LEVELS, GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABILITY DEVELOPMENT IS HARDLY POSSIBLE WITHOUT ENDING THE WAR IN THE HEART OF EUROPE

Dear friends and partners,


These days the Sustainable Future of our beautiful planet is at stake. 

We all need to put our efforts to contribute to stopping the unfolding war in the heart of Europe.

Many of you know that designers representing their digital-to-physical products at IMAGENERIA represent all continents (besides Antarctica). Part of the team and the founders behind IMAGENERIA have Ukrainian origin, and some of them are located in Ukraine now. On February 24, the war in Ukraine started as the Russian military began shelling a vast territory in the heart of Europe from the air.

We strongly feel that we need to help contribute to ending this war. Peace and support of the most vulnerable categories - women activists, children, and animals - is what we invite you to stand for together with us.
