IPRA backs Ukraine Communication Support Network


(Comments)

IPRA, the International Public Relations Association, has endorsed a PR initiative to create the Ukraine Communication Support Network (UCSN). The network, hosted by the UK-based Public Relations and Communications Association and the International Communications Consultancy Organisation, seeks to coordinate volunteer communications activity in support of the people of Ukraine. The UCSN invites PR professionals around the world to submit proposals for voluntary communications activity. A steering committee, comprised of Ukrainian and international communicators, will oversee approval of these proposals.

  

How to help
Communications professionals are invited to submit proposals across 12 categories including Ukrainian government media relations, assisting journalists, promoting fund raising for refugee organizations, and the countering of misinformation. Proposals can be submitted here.

  

IPRA President Etsuko Tsugihara comments: “IPRA is proud to support this excellent initiative and will rally its network of global experts to help.
