Confucius and Socrates took a walk through Belgrade’s city center (Belgrade, Serbia)

World Philosophy Day

As a part of the World Philosophy Day promotion, Belgrade’s branch of New Acropolis organized a street workshop under the name “Your Symbol for a Good Day”. For two days, the volunteers wore robes representative of Confucius’ and Socrates’ time and offered passers-by to pull out a postcard with one symbol, and invited them to participate in the program that was organized to honor this day. Sun, steps, a key, a bridge, and a butterfly were just some of approximately fifteen symbols that our fellow citizens could converse about with the volunteers, who encouraged them to discover a deeper meaning of something that they encounter on an almost daily basis.
