12th International Meeting on New Philosophical Practices


For two days, UNESCO will host, in the framework of the 2012 World Philosophy Day, the 12th International Meeting on New Philosophical Practices focusing on the general topic of "Educating in a Complex World ...".

A series of workshops and conferences will be held throughout the day, bringing together experts, teachers, researchers, practitioners, students and the general public.

This event is an opportunity for everyone interested in the practice of philosophy to meet and exchange views in an international context. The goal is to make philosophy accessible to the largest number of people in a wide range of places, including primary and secondary schools, hospitals, prisons, cafés, “adult education centres”, companies, theatres, multimedia libraries and so forth.
