Under the auspices of the Austrian Commission for UNESCO the
ACPC Austrian Center of Philosophy with Children
organizes the
International Conference
"Philosophy of Interculturality"

October 16 - 19, 2008 in Graz/Austria

The ability of children and young people to participate in intercultural dialogue is basic for orientation in a globalized world. The aim of the conference is to foster the intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue and the exchange between the different approaches and theories in the context of the contemporal world. Therefore we have to meet great challenges, especially in view of the important renewal in the relationship between interculturalism, ethnic identities, interdisciplinarism and transdisciplinarism. This is reflected in the changes of the curricula in the field of education. Just here the conference aims to grasp the increasingly intense and critical debates – especially in Europe – about the meaning of "curricula" and develop new concepts. It is intended that this international congress is an intercultural and interdisciplinary forum for gaining new insights into multicultural orientation as well as for functional pedagogical objectives. Recent scientific results and practice-oriented projects, e.g. Philosophy with Children and Youths, will be introduced. The program offers the approximately 150 participants from 18 countries, among them 24 speakers an eventful conference.

The Themes of the conference covers the following fields:
Intercultural Dialogue
Philosophy of Human Rights
Transculturalism and Transdisciplinarism
Pluralistic dimension of Philosophy for Children
Culture, Integration and Education
The Concept of (multiple) identity/ies
Citizenship and Democracy
Lifelong Learning
