IAAP/UPF-Argentina Discussion: “Universal Language: Esperanto”

Argentina-2022-11-07-IAAP/UPF-Argentina Discussion: “Universal Language: Esperanto”


UPF-Argentina— “Universal Language for Peace: Esperanto” was the theme of the Discussion led by Prof. Julio Nardini, representative of the International Association of Academicians for Peace (IAAP) in Argentina, with Silvia Rottenberg, president of the Buenos Aires Esperanto Association. The event took place on November 7, 2022, on Zoom (1).

Esperanto is a widespread language spoken all around the world, created by the Polish eye doctor Ludwik Zamenhof (1859-1917), many times nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The bases of the language were published in 1887 and the goal was to develop a neutral language easy to learn, more suitable for communication. His objective was not to replace national languages, but for it to become an international alternative easier to learn (2).

During the presentation, there was a life testimony by Ms. Rottenberg on her spiritual search. There was also a reference to 2022 Peace Road, which this year has as a theme “Connecting Argentina through Peace” (3).
