We believe Philosophy is an innate attitude inherent in human beings. We aim to translate this attitude into actions that allow us to develop our full potential and improve our world.

Every year, the centres of New Acropolis around the world respond to the call of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to celebrate World Philosophy Day, which has been taking place every November since 2002.

This year, we are happy to announce that New Acropolis in South Africa is collaborating with UNESCO South Africa to bring this event to you.

Together, we will delve into Politics for Justice, Art for Beauty, Science for Truth, Religion for Good, and Philosophy as the Balancing Axis between all pillars of society.

Programme Highlights:

  • 10:00 - 10:30 Networking and value-based activation
  • 10:30 - 11:50 Opening and individual presentations
  • 12:15 - 13:00 Panel discussion and Q&A

Join us for this insightful event that aims to inspire leaders in all fields to revalorize the human being and foster collaboration across different areas of society. Together, let's take philosophy off the pages and into the fabric of daily life.
