Philosophy Festival in Greece® is an interdisciplinary educational program designed for high school students in Europe, organized by Associazione Festival della Filosofia in Magna Grecia.
The Festival’s mission is to combine the cultural value of a journey to the places where western Philosophy was born with the rediscover, during low-season periods, of areas of historical and archaeological importance, symbols of the Mediterranean culture: first of all, Greece.
During the six days of the Philosophy Festival in Greece®, students can achieve new goals in learning thanks to innovative didactic experiences, based on new teaching methodologies: Philosophical dialogues, Philosophical-theatrical walks (περίπατος), workshops, contests and others. Activities for teachers are included too.
Every Spring, in March and April, many high school students from European countries take part in the Philosophy Festival in Greece® “Philia”, held in Athens, Delphi, Messene and Epidaurus and their surroundings, to join in a cultural experience that will allow them, through non-formal education courses, a new approach to knowledge.
