We celebrated the day of ‘Dragobete’ (Romanian God of Joy and of Love) with a visit to our friends at the St. Mihail and Gavril senior center. All guests enjoyed special moments thanks to the dance, songs, the poetry and an unexpected ‘Costume Carnival’. Finally, volunteers offered a beautiful cake decorated with the symbols of love and friendship. As souvenir, each person received a “mărţişor”, a handmade symbol of Romanian Spring.

“Thinking freely, acting together” was the title of an evening program organized by the Hunyadi Cultural Center of New Acropolis Hungary in the context of World Philosophy Day 2016. The activities focused on what philosophy can provide as weapons against hatred and social exclusion which are so characteristic of our times. The program began with a brief talk about the human ideal according to the ancient Greeks. Participants also worked in teams to test and further develop their cooperative team-building skills throughout various exercises. The program ended with participants enjoying a musical version of a poem by John Donne.
