The program included a lecture from Michael Rauhut, professor of popular music at University of Agder in Kristiansand (Norway), on "The role of music in the collapse of East Germany" and a discussion on "The impact of music on political and social change". The specialist told the story and the connection between youth culture and popular music, noting the importance of the musical works of such artists as Tom Petty and Helen Sengerin.

Ihor Savchuk, art history PhD , Deputy Director for Scientific Work of the Institute of Contemporary Art of the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine continued the event with a topic on the influence of music on political changes in Ukraine, which received special response from the guests. And music hits by the Scorpions bands "Wind of change" and Okean Elzy "I Will Not Give Up Without a Fight" were the songs which associated with certain political changes in the world.

Next, a web-based quest about the location of the homes of the Ukrainian Berner community and about Germany in general was awaited. And anyone could ask the experts questions about the topics raised.
