CREATIVITY UNITES: PRESERVING GLOBAL VALUES
The major subject of the School is the value selection between the internal own values and what affects a man from the outside, such as mass media, Internet, and common stereotypes. How does a modern man pass through such value conflict? What contradictory values do people face? What value dilemmas do they solve? How to save global values and avoid instantaneous influences?
Participants will have to reflect the struggle inside a modern man between eternal true global principles and aggressively imposed inane temptations of the modern world.
