The Wilson Center, chartered by Congress as the official memorial to President Woodrow Wilson (U.S. nation’s 28th President), is well-known for its bridge-building activity between the worlds of academia and public policy, and for its engagement in the global dialogue of ideas.
Professor Eliot Sorel concluded that: … “We urgently need a similar political will to design, allocate the necessary resources and execute an implementation plan for a comprehensive global initiative a la Marshall Plan focusing on health, education and development to enhance life, wellbeing and global security for all nations, across the life cycle and across economies.”

Allow us to remember within this context that Professor Eliot Sorel (also well-known as a catalyzer in promoting Romania’s culture in the United States of America: the Romanian monasteries, food, crafts, music and dance) initiated and led the so-called „Opening the Gates to Romania” project at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, in 1999. On that occasion, a wooden Maramures church was also build piece by piece on the National Mall in the center of Washington as part of the year 1999’s Festival. The world’s largest museum and research complex, the Smithsonian (founded in 1846), is a true steward and ambassador of cultural connections, its generous work wisely promoting understanding of world cultures.
