Aleksandar Protic, president of UNESCO Club and director of Intercultural Forum at Sorbonne- Paris University was invited to Oxford University where he gave two lectures :
19 January 2011 in Oxford University Balliol College at the first of the Dean’s Seminar for 2012:
Youth involvement in United Nations and UNESCO’s programs
15 January 2011 at the headquarters of the Oxford University Society of St Alban & Sergius :
Religious patrimony in UNESCO World Heritage sites: importance, normative instruments, perspectives
Each lecture, intended to university staff, postgraduate students and undergraduate students of Oxford University Colleges and guests, was followed by a question period and reception. The officials of Oxford university were very enthusiastic after the lectures :
“The diversity of UNESCO’s programs, the wide scope of patrimony included in the World Heritage sites program and the organization’s potential for youth involvement both nationally and internationally are very little known in Britain, and both audiences showed their appreciation of the opportunity to learn more on these subjects through enthusiastic questions, discussion and request for sources of further information…”
