Poster for the International Celebration of World Philosophy Day 2010 at UNESCO
Since 2006, the FFCU organizes a "Concours Philo" (philosophy competition) open to young people of the UNESCO Clubs and to all high school students.
The theme for 2010-2011 will be "Can we do without the idea of human identity? And is the notion of the human race still relevant to raise this idea?". It encourages reflection on various issues: ethical responsibility, teleology, thinking about the "human race"...
On the occasion of the launch of the new competition, the FFCU will present its prize to the 2009-2010 laureate, Raphael Tourneur, student of the Jean Michel High School in Lons-le-Saunier (France).
