This program aims to:
- Bring philosophy to all public
- To publicize its importance in daily life
- Promote reflection and dialogue practice
A cornerstone of this program is the celebration of World Philosophy Day.
Every year, the centers of New Acropolis around the world respond to the call of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to celebrate World Philosophy Day, which has been taking place every November since 2002.
The programs organized by the different countries that form part of New Acropolis International (OINA) have brought philosophy closer to many different kinds of audiences using a wide variety of media and an imaginative range of different events.
There are forums and discussions aimed at getting people to reflect on the close relationship that exists between philosophy and timeless values. Other centers choose to stage performances of the immortal episodes of history, by recreating dialogues and messages of outstanding philosophers.
Other events link philosophy with the arts, promoting exhibitions and photographic competitions to give form in images to the conceptual richness brought to us by the great sages of the world.
IONA has a website dedicated to World Philosophy Day where it features some of the activities that take place every year throughout the world to celebrate this event.
