I was invited to give lectures ''Our Heritage - our identity cradle and cross-cultural understanding factor’’ at the First South East Europe World Heritage Youth Forum - World Heritage Education: Networking for a Better Common Future (2011), which was organized by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, UNESCO Associated Schools, Croatian Commission for UNESCO, Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO and UNESCO Office in Venice, and ''Youth role in the World Heritage preservation and protection’’ at the Second South East Europe World Heritage Youth Forum for Peace and Sustainable Development (2013), which was organized by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, Commission of the Republic of Serbia for UNESCO, United Nations Association of Serbia and the UNESCO Office in Venice - Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe. Mr. Alexander Schischlik, UNESCO Chief of Section - Youth and Sport Sector for Social and Human Sciences, also invited me to give a lecture ''Young global citizens addressing climate change - Local practices, biodiversity, disasters’’ at the 9th UNESCO Youth Forum ‘’Young Global Citizens for a Sustainable Planet’’, which was held in Paris in October 26-28, 2015, as well as Ms. Veruschka-Meike Jähnert, Secretary of the Friedrich-Schiller - Universität Jena, who invited me to give a lecture ''Public History and the Media’’ at the conference ‘’Public History, Contested Pasts and Politics of Mourning’’, which was held in Belgrade in June 22-28, 2019 as part of the project Erasmus+ Programme - Jean Monnet Network: ‘’Network for Applied European Contemporary History’’ (Reference number 575165-EPP-1-2016- 1-DE-EPPJMO-NETWORK). I participated on the Tailor-made training seminar for media professionals ‘’European Media Standards and the Implementation of the Harmonized Media Legislation in Serbia’’ organized by Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia as a part of the IPA Project ‘’Strengthening Media Freedom’’ on November 27, 2015. The seminar focused on the following: respect for media freedom, publishing and broadcasting information of public importance, the right to rely on the content of official documents, the autonomy of media professionals, media freedom versus personal rights (privacy, dignity, authenticity), the respect for duty of responsible reporting, prohibition of hate speech, protection of minors. Since 2019 I am a member of expert commissions of Ministry of Culture and Information and municipalities and cities in the Republic of Serbia for the evaluation of projects submitted to competitions in the field of public information. As one of the six best doctoral students at the University of Belgrade, I was selected to study under the Erasmus+ exchange program in the summer semester of the 2019/2020 school year at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Charles University in Prague, but the participation was canceled due to COVID-19.
