2nd Transatlantic Dialogue
“Living Culture in the University” – Developing Citizens of the World
Within the framework of the cooperation between the Miami University Ohio, the Northern Arizona University, the Bowling Green State University, the University Network of European Capitals of Culture (UNeECC), the European Council of Student Affairs (ECStA), the European Cultural Parliament and under the protectorate of the American Embassy in Luxembourg, the University of Luxembourg is holding an international conference in Luxembourg from May 25th to 27th 2011.
Arts and culture are defined by the creativeness of our society. If the level of culture, education and intellectual life rises, citizens will understand and evaluate their problems much easier and face life with greater confidence and understanding, respectively show greater tolerance for the thinking and acting of other people. Music, drama poetry, dance, fine arts & of course … science are expressions of culture. The aim of the conference is to focus on our responsibility as professionals, acting in Universities and working with upcoming generations, to consider these aspects and try to support our students and staff members keeping in mind the importance of this lifelong learning process.
