EUFOR LOT House visited the United World College in Mostar

A team from the EUFOR LOT House Mostar visited the United World College (UWC) in Mostar to brief Bosnian and international students on the work of EUFOR on Monday 11 February.

Captain Matthias Corodi, First Lieutenant Lea Fuchs and Special Officer Robert Ramser delivered lectures on the role of EUFOR Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the role of women in the EUFOR and the Swiss Army.

The presentations were delivered to a group of over 130 students from over 60 different nationalities; in the audience were over 40 students from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Thanking the officers from LOT Mostar, Headteacher of UWC Mostar Mark Feltham, said: “The presentations were all very well pitched for the audience of 16 to 20 year-olds. We hope that this may be the foundation for future cooperation between UWC Mostar and LOT Mostar”. Special Officer Ramser shared his own story of his path from UWC student to EUFOR; this gave students an insight in to how one can follow UWC values whilst working in the military.

Special Officer Ramser said: “As a former UWC student, it was a great pleasure to present a lecture on the Swiss involvement in EUFOR to the students of UWC Mostar.” UWC was founded in 1962 to offer an educational experience based on shared learning, collaboration and understanding so that the students would act as champions of peace; UWC Mostar was founded in 2006 and is described as being firmly established as a College at the heart of the UWC movement.
