UNESCO proclaims 2016 ‘Year of Aristotle’
Series of events in his honor to take place in 2016
In celebration of 2,400 years since the birth of the great Greek thinker of antiquity and one of the fathers of western philosophy, Aristotle, UNESCO proclaimed 2016 the ‘Year of Aristotle’. A series of events to honour Aristotle have been scheduled throughout the year, with the most prestigious one planned to take place in Paris in November. The program events, which will be under the auspices of the Education Ministry were presented Thursday by the Deputy Minister Theodosis Pelegrinis in Athens. Pelegrinis said the Year of Aristotle offers a great opportunity for Greece to export its education. For more information visit the Athens Institute.
