Nathalie Kesler Lecture at the Millenium Gate Museum
August 20, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In honor of The French Delegation O.N.G Citoyenne Mondiale, the National Monuments Foundation introduces Nathalie Kesler, founder of Pangee O.N.G. Citoyenne Mondiale, to give a lecture on Olivier Giscard d’Estaing’s Universal City.
Olivier Giscard d’Estaing’s “UNIVERSAL CITY”
In the tradition of the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle and Atlanta’s 1895 Cotton States Exposition, a universal cultural center could provide a permanent framework for meetings and studies for the world’s problems.
It would be inspired by world exhibitions but distinguished by the following characteristics: Its buildings would be permanent, they would be designed, each of them on a theme, without having strictly national buildings.
Below is a proposed list. More than just exhibition venues, they would be places of activity, research, innovation, communication and application work; all countries would be offered to participate, or to choose some of them.
The themes would correspond to those of UNESCO, to which others would be added such as:
- Culture, education, science and technology, Painting, sculpture, architecture, music, cinema, theatre
- Environment: air, water, vegetation, human and animal life.
- The history and geography of the planet, by region, nations and continents; rivers, mountains, seas and oceans.
- The disasters of nature.
- Global policies, meeting point for governmental and non-governmental organizations on international political issues.
- Economy and society, innovation, poverty and growth, demographics and migration
- Health, care, research, prevention
- Security and peace; historical analysis and criticism
- Sports and leisure
- It would be beneficial to consult with a few competent authorities to gather their reactions and suggestions.
- The project would then be more credible and could be proposed to countries that could achieve it.
Two approaches would be possible:
1. Either approach some of the most likely receptive countries
2. Either launch a global consultation as is done for world exhibitions.
Following the lecture is a Cocktail Reception.
