The 104th Governing Board meeting of the International Association of Universities for the Third Age- AIUTA- was concluded on May 21 in Wuhan, China with many decisions taken including accepting new members to the Board and approving the budget.


The meeting was attended by AUT VP Marcel Hinain who had an intervention in the international conference that followed and that was focused on the role of universities for the third age (U3As) as the New Silk Road was established by China across the world. Hinain pointed to the Middle East situation on this matter and indicated that the UAE and Egypt were the ME countries that would benefit the most from the New Silk Road also called the Belt and Road. Hinain also mentioned the obstacles posed by the presence of many economic powers in the region that would want to preserve their interests. Mr. Hinain's word also mentioned the role in human rights that AUT and its division for the third age can play in the area and the efforts it can make to help start U3As in Syria and Irak when the security situation allows it.

It was also unanimously decided to hold the 105th meeting at American University of Technology on October 10. The meeting will be followed by an international conference on October 11th around the theme "Cultures and Universities for the Third Age". Hinain informed the audience that the official speakers from Lebanon that confirmed their participation were the Minister of Education Akram Chehayeb, Member of Parliament Ziad Hawat, the Ambassadors of Czech Republic, Argentina and Tunisia who will each speak about the perspective of their respective continents on the education of senior citizens.

AUT has integrated AIUTA in 2016 and has been running a program for senior citizens ever since.
