Ukrainian Leaders Ask PilmerPR for Tips on Green PR

PilmerPR announced founder John Pilmer met today with Ukrainian government and energy leaders to offer insights into the energy communications challenges facing  that country. Hosted by the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy (UCCD) and as part of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), the visitors are traveling to Utah to examine “Energy Efficiency at the Federal, State and Local Levels”, and are holding private meetings with experts to strategize on improved energy conservation and communications in Ukraine. The visitors include city and national leaders in areas of housing, energy efficiency, labor, and governance.

“We seek field leaders to meet with International Visitors, focusing on areas of mutual concern and opportunity,” stated Erica Schoenefeld, UCCD Program Associate. “Mr. Pilmer of PilmerPR was a clear choice to offer sharp insight into areas of communication affecting sustainability, energy efficiency, and conservation. We appreciate our experts’ willingness to build bridges of understanding with our distinguished guests.”

Ukraine deals with ongoing challenges as an energy importer with significant supply and cost challenges during tough economic times. Today’s discussion included communication strategy and working effectively with stakeholders on Energy Efficiency at the Federal, State, and Local Levels.

“This international exchange is a very positive opportunity for both of our countries,” states Pilmer. “The energy challenges facing many nations are most effectively addressed as we share information and expertise in a spirit of mutual collaboration and cooperation. I’m glad to be a part of it and hope to make our world a little better as a result of the effort.”
