Prince of Wales checks out Serbian street paper Liceulice

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were introduced to Serbian street paper Liceulice, during their five-day tour of the Balkans last week.

Among the places that Charles and Camilla visited during their two days in Serbia was the Nova Iskra Entrepreneurship Hub, a centre that helps foster cooperation between small businesses in Belgrade.

Liceulice was one of the innovative projects invited by Belgrade non-profit Smart Kolektiv and the British Embassy in Belgrade to be highlighted during the visit.

Nikoleta Kosovac, project coordinator at Liceulice [pictured above in magenta dress], met the Prince at the event.

She said: “We were very pleased to be chosen, among so many successful social enterprises, to show off our magazine to His Royal Highness. It was such an honour to be able to speak with the Prince about street paper movement and social entrepreneurship in Serbia.

“It was also great opportunity to present our work to wide audience since great number of media from the region and Europe reported about the Royal visit in Serbia.”

The Prince of Wales also showed great interest in the products of other Serbian social enterprises: Our House, KEC MNRO, Supernatural, SOFI, Daj Daj and Youth Center Vega.

The Prince and Duchess took away a goodie bag, packed with all the products – including the latest edition of Liceulice – when they left.
