Aleksandar Protic : lectures at Oxford University


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 2012 in

Oxford University Balliol College at the Dean’s Seminar :

Youth involvement for UNESCO



       15 January 2012

at the headquarters of the Oxford University Society of St Alban & Sergius :

 Fostering UNESCO World Heritage and Sustainable development



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…”

Celeste Tisdelle, Lonsdale Curator of Archives and Manuscripts of Balliol College Anna Sander, society president Kristian Akselberg, as well as students, coordinators in organization of Balliol Dean seminar’s lecture: Ms Catherine Brooks and Ms Aine Quinn.
