Report Trip to Moscow (Russia ) in October 2006
Pangea Foundation together with the Centre of Humanist Studies of Moscow and the University of Friendship among Peoples (previously University Patrice Lumumba), organized the seminar “Non-violence and Tolerance among Peoples, past, present and future”. Professors and intellectuals from different Universities and Institutions lectured for two days. The proceedings will be published in Russian and Spanish.
After this event we had the opportunity to sign a Framework Agreement to cooperate in the dissemination of the culture of the non-violence, tolerance and understanding among all Peoples.
The agreement was signed by the Dean of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences: Dr. Vladimir A. Tsvyk, the President of the Centre of Humanist Studies of Moscow: Hugo Novotny and the President of the Pangea Foundation: Eduardo Gozalo.
During these days the documentaries “Toledo-Alexandria, Beacons of humanity”, “Frederic II, a bridge between East and West” and “Non-violence” were shown.
Given their quality level and the focus with a high educational and historical content, these documentaries are going to be used in several Universities of Russia as educational material
The Cultural Attaché of the Embassy of Egypt, Dr. Ali Ghaleb Ahmed Ghaleb, was one of the speakers and expressed a very positive opinion. He said he was ready to support this project in Egypt, developing future cultural, institutional and university activities. He also manifested his support to the creation of the future Multicultural Park of Alexandria.
