Nature & Pollution: “Philosophy-on-the-go” Workshop

Is the earth a giant trash? Do human beings not belong to nature?

Human beings invented thousands of novelties thanks to their intelligence. They built a great civilization. In the meantime, they came to treat nature as a massive storage room, a big waste yard which would take all the trash there is. They ended up forgetting they are also a part of the nature, in fact only one of the species depending on one another.

The “Philosophy On-the-go” workshop by the artist and trainer Müjgan Özçay aims to enable us to find answers to questions on human and environment through interactive means including games, handcrafts, dramas and Q&A techniques. The workshop is based on the book named La nature et la pollution of the worlwide known “Les Gouters Philo” series, published in Turkey as “Çıtır Çıtır Felsefe”, written by Brigitte Labbe and Michel Puech.
