As Hisar School, we are hosting the Human Rights Day event organized by the Istanbul High Schools Philosophy Clubs Platform (ILFKP).

For the first time this year, High School students from Greece, Oman and China will attend the sessions in our event, which will take place on December 12, 2020 and will be held online under pandemic conditions. The title of the sessions, which will take place in the form of a workshop, was determined as “Rights and Freedoms in the Pandemic”, with the effect of the pandemic conditions we are going through. Academicians and field experts will moderate the workshop sessions to be held in Turkish and English.

After the opening speech given by the President of the Philosophical Society of Turkey, Ioanna Kuçuradi, students will be divided into groups online for the workshops in the sub-headings below. Students will come together again at the end of the studies and share the outputs of the workshops with each other.
