Celebrating International Day of Philosophy
Philosophy is present in the day-to-day moments of our lives, in the things we do, in the various expressions of ourselves in the world in the very essence of life! In recognition of this, in 2005, UNESCO established the International Day of Philosophy to underline the enduring value of Philosophy for the development of human thought for each culture and each individual.
In its essence of being an active search for a connect with universal human values, directed towards a more meaningful life and a more harmonious society, Philosophy finds multiple expressions.
It is these expressions that we celebrate at the Philosophy Habba 2018, a fun-filled gathering comprising of exciting activities of Philosophy, Culture & Performing arts, and Volunteering & Ecology – with permaculture gardening workshops, arts & music performances and philosophical dialogues on life.
Join us to get inspired and experience the meaningful pathways to change!
