Sign of respect from European colleagues
Representative of Belarus elected Vice-President of European Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations
The Chairman of the Republican Public Association of UNESCO Clubs, Dmitry Subtselny, has been elected Vice-President of the European Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations. The decision was taken after the General Assembly of the European Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations, held in December in Bucharest.
The European Federation is headed by Daniela Popescu, President of the Romanian Association of UNESCO Clubs. The new leadership of the Federation aims to inspire co-operation between UNESCO associations, centres and clubs across Europe. “We need to develop international projects and programmes in the spheres of education, science, culture, information and communication. In addition, we may create a special section for regional co-operation across Eastern Europe,” she notes.
The election of the Belarusian representative to the post of Vice-President of the Federation shows that the work of Belarusian UNESCO Clubs has earned respect from European colleagues. Of course, the position brings responsibility for the vital development of the European Federation, which unites over 20 National UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations and was founded in 2001, with support from RPO BelAU.
