with prof. dr.Haris Pašović, international theatre director and professor at Performing Arts Academy, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and IEDC-Bled School of Management, Slovenia

“Through the East West Center Sarajevo, Haris Pašović realizes his ideas about life, love and peace and creates ideas for his lectures at the IEDC-Bled School of Management, where he teaches the subject of Arts and Leadership. The art does not only exist for entertainment, but helps leaders to think about their own roles in society and how important it is to remain humane. This is crucial in times of crisis, in which, according to Pašović, we must not be cowards and in no way remain passive.“

But this does not mean that we invest in the future of our fabulous profits, but that it is an investment in knowledge and talent, it must bring solutions that will bring greater prosperity and equality, as well as effective sustainable orientation to preserve our planet. And we will be led to this by talents who are educating themselves and gaining more imagination to create solutions by reading and learning.”
