About the lecture

This interactive workshop was held in open form, with accent on discussion. The focus was on raising questions and giving all the participants a chance to offer their perspective regarding different subjects, such as: What is the new global order? Where does Serbia stand within these flows? Do we notice trends in historical development of our society? What will our future look like, and how to get there?

Slavko Andrejević and the participants of the third cycle of the NELT Educational Program had a discussion on this topic.

“Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.”
