Aleksandar Protic’s lecture is absolutely for everyone based in Cambridge during May holidays. Why? Because this motivational talk will provide you with fantastic tools if you want to get involved in international communication, project development and activism. Regardless how professional your career already got, stay tuned for this highly personal journey through UNESCO headquarters and The World Heritage in 4 languages. Proudly brought to you by Cambridge University Russian Society: from Paris to Saint Petersburg and back to Cambridge.

Aleksandar Protic, the Federal Counselor at The Federation of UNESCO Clubs of France, organizes high-level conferences and designs educational and scientific programs. He had organized international exhibitions dedicated to Russian art, and currently works on a joint analysis of Russia-Europe interactions and proposes solutions to enhance them. Aleksandar had completed his Master studies in cross-cultural communication at the Sorbonne University of Paris. After his graduation at the International Diplomatic Academy, he continued with executive education courses at Harvard and Cambridge. Back in France, he studied at the Prime Minister of France’s School of Public Administration (ENA), where he gave lectures afterwards. Passionate about civil society issues and about developing stronger impact through UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations, Aleksandar gave lectures at many universities including Sorbonne and Oxford, at UNESCO Headquarters, in front of students, specialist and government representatives.

The UK is one of the countries with the most developed UNESCO cooperation but paradoxically among the countries with the lowest ad hoc civil society involvement. UNESCO , the international reference for education, science and culture, is also a unique place where students can submit recommendations to Member States representatives at the highest decision-making level. UNESCO Clubs propose many ways for youth to engage the movement supporting some of the organization’s goals. Tesla Memory Project is an example of a student initiative started as a small project at Sorbonne University, which had progressively reached a international audience promoting scientific and universal values worldwide. The objective of the TESLA Memory Project, since 2009, is to increase awareness of: the life and work of Nikola Tesla, of the global importance of science and of the World Heritage.
