Colours of Unity: Buddy Bear for the Ukraine

This beautiful Buddy Bear was created as a symbol of solidarity and painted by our artist Ute Faber together with participants of the Berlin Science Week in a live painting campaign.

It was presented to the Ukrainian embassy and is intended to act as a sign of hope for Ukraine. The Chief of Protocol of the Berlin Senate, Carolin Freifrau von Buddenbrock, Dr Andreas Kosmider, Dr Luiza Bengtsson, Dr Klaus Herlitz, Viviana Plasil, the Ukrainian Ambassador Oleksii Makeiev and the artist Ute Faber were present at the ceremonial unveiling on 1 December 2023.
We would like to thank the Berlin Senate Chancellery, the Falling Walls Foundation and the Cypriot Embassy for their support.
