This summer, the Municipality of Athens, having the privilege and honor of hosting the Plato’s Academy within its boundaries, is organizing, from May 30 to July 31, a series of activities under the title “Philosophy at the Plato’s Academy”. A program dedicated to philosophy could not forget “Little Philosophers in the Academy”, an activity organised in collaboration with Atraktos, a non-profit initiative aiming to promote education and positive standards and introduce children and teenagers to the “game” in the most entertaining way. A team from the University of Crete will be in charge. With the hours of the program shared between the Plato’s Academy Digital Museum and the Atraktos, children will have their first “dive” into philosophy through “Be a superhero for an hour!” and “Be invisible for an hour!”. In contrast, teenagers will have the opportunity to attend the exciting program “Matrix and Philosophy: Bound in Plato’s Cave”!
