New Acropolis participated in the traditional Philosophers’ Night, presenting philosophy as a way of life through different interactive activities. The night began with perspectives on life, death and love by two great masters of 20th century Hungarian literature, Frigyes Karinthy and Dezső Kosztolányi.

Another activity staged a humorous presentation contrasting a person with a heroic attitude and a boaster, followed by a debate whereby participants discussed active and passive attitudes to life.

Volunteers from New Acropolis Bulgaria joined forces to delight the children from the orphanage in the village of Razliv. Together with the younger kids, they made autumn trees and animals with real yellow leaves – thus creating beautiful paintings that formed an ‘exhibition’. Older children took part in fun games, which developed their attention, imagination, resourcefulness and team spirit. All this, as usual, was accompanied by much laughter, smiles and shared joy.
