- Dear Madam Speaker,
Ladies and Gents,
It is a great honor for me to participate today in the celebration of a decade of activities of UNESCO Club of Belgrade. At the same time it is a pleasure, because for me it is the first time that I visit Belgrade.
When Ms. Milica President Dromnjakovic, told me that I have come before you with a speech, I thought about the idea to try to do my discour captivating you and present activities of the European Federation of Associations, Centres and Clubs for UNESCO that I represent for this match.
But this is what the European Federation of Associations, UNESCO Clubs and Centres?
I want to briefly historical small. In 1999, Romania had to call Florence constitution of this organization. At that time there were already regional federations to Arab countries, in Africa and Asia. We created a working group for 2 and a half years has met and prepared for the Congress of Constitutions all necessary documents.
The creation of this federation was held in 2001 en Roumanie, à Busteni, Romania acting as a key player in the establishment of this organization.
A more 10 years Congress Constitution, last year during the National Day of Romania, Presidency was awarded to us after 15 years of activity constantly in motion clubs, centers and associations in Europe and North America. At the same time the Executive Board of the FEACU consists of representatives of: Romania, Cyprus, Russia, Greece, Italy, Belarus, Spain, Serbia and Portugal. It was a great pleasure for me and I announced before the election that Romania will support the candidacy of Serbia and I did this knowing the remarkable personality of Milica and bearing in mind the friendship between our countries since many years. Serbian-Romanian diplomatic relations seniority 134 years.
For this anniversary event I am presenting today I prepared a journal in which I present the activity that Romania has conducted this year under the auspices of the FEACU.
I would just like to briefly go through: the organization of the International Conference on the 5th “Youth and Museums”, participation in the First China-Europe Forum, project organization “Metamorphoses” for its 5th edition, International Symposium Passport to Global Ethic one-UNESCO and the Private Sector, the Executive Council FEACU 2013, Symposium Art and Civilizations in the monastic spaces, presentation Passport for Global Ethic for the 37th General Conference of UNESCO in Paris.
To teach this discourse I invite you to follow all the video projections prepared at the 3rd Congress of the FEACU December 2012 and symposium on the theme UNESCO and the Private Sector organized the occassion of the Executive Board in September EFUCA 2013 à Bucarest.
To conclude I would like to get an invitation. This is an invitation from the Alumnus Club for UNESCO of which I am President, to sign a partnership between the organization and the UNESCO Club of Belgrade. My proposal is to base the development of bilateral relations that lead to a better understanding of the other. The partnership between the two clubs may find themselves in activities starting with 2014 having as theme the educational and cultural activities under the banner of UNESCO.
On behalf of the European Federation and on behalf of the Romanian Federation through the Club Alumnus, dear Madam Speaker, Milica Dromnjakovic I wish to offer you a work of art specially prepared for this event. By means of the artist Valeria Tofan I bring you the message of Happy Celebration for the UNESCO Club of Belgrade with many beautiful creations in the hope of a better world.
