Tesla Memory Project had participated at this year’s edition of the Asia-Europe Forum on Education (AEFE), dedicated to an important historical landmark:
the 70th Anniversary of the establishment of UNESCO.
The Third Edition of the AEFE was the first one to be hosted on European soil, namely in Bucharest, Romania from October 7-11, 2015.
The main pillar for discussion regards current challenges to education. AEFE UNESCO 2015 was dedicated entirely to the themes regarding Sustainable Development in Education.
The forum was organized in a manner which promotes a high level of interaction among the participants. In addition to the official forum related activities, the participants went on several tours, a field trip, visits to relevant institutions and attend several official ceremonies.
The activities were scheduled to be as educational and as dynamic as possible, in order to encourage the participants to share ideas, experiences and good practices regarding current educational methods. Participants were encouraged to present a paper during the forum meetings in order to fuel a relevant debate regarding the forum’s theme on sustainable development in education.
It is paramount that relevant personalities who are active in the educational field come together and discuss from a global perspective the contemporary dilemmas regarding educational ethics. Constant, well-organized and efficacious dialogue is the only solution to the obstacles in education determined by issues such as economic globalization, computerization and ever-increasing cultural diversity. The Asia-Europe Forum on Education was established in 2013 as an international gathering where such problems are specifically targeted.
The first edition of the forum was hosted by the Huijia School in Beijing, China in 2013. The forum was a success, bringing together a vast number of participants. The first edition was themed Ethics Education and was centered on professors’ responsibility, efficient approaches and effects. The forum launched the Passport for Global Ethics, a ground breaking document aimed at promoting ethical education on a global scale.
The second edition of the forum, themed The Multicultural Challenge, was hosted by the Jilin HuaQiao Foreign Languages University in China. The participants discussed the importance of promoting multicultural education and concrete ways of improving international communication regarding educational issues.

Tesla Memory Project, together with the French Federation for UNESCO, Kapacity.org, UNESCO University Club and Socia, celebrated Nikola Tesla’s birthday at the Palace of Belgrade, on July 9th 2015 in the evening (Tesla was born on midnight between 9th and 10th July 1856).
The event was formally opened by the President of the French Federation for UNESCO, Yves Lopez and Director of the Tesla Memory Project, Aleksandar Protic, who both talked about Tesla’s important role in UNESCO Memory of the World register.
Tesla talk was followed by Future Leadership masterclass organized by Kapacity.org. The key speaker was Alex Cameron of Socia, a London-based expert in collaborative leadership. Alex has extensive experience in the oil and gas sector and in other contexts where people know they must collaborate to arrive at a better result. Their motivation to collaborate is not just about ‘doing the right thing’ – it delivers better business in terms of profit, employment and sustainability of ventures. This dialogue-based, interdisciplinary and intensive event was attended by a diverse cross-section of local young people and mid-career professionals. Kapacity.org director Natasha Cica was delighted to ‘co-create’ this event with entrepreneurial young Serbs – including Nataša Gligorijević who founded the New Diplomacy Centre here in Belgrade, and Kosta Živanović who is President of the University Club for UNESCO.
