The second round table of the series


by Volos Academy for Theological Studies
in the framework of the events of the Committee “Greece 2021”

After the successful realization of the first round table ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY AND THE “OTHER” IN GREECE IN 2040, in Athens, Volos Academy for theological Studies prepares the second event of the series in Volos, in “Thessalia” Conference Center (Melissatika), on Monday, September 13, 2021, 7 p.m., with the topic The formation of the Modern Greek identity in Greece today and tomorrow , which will be webcasted live. These round tables examine the general attitude of religion and particularly of Greek Orthodoxy towards the “other,” focusing on the transformations of the country in the next 20 years, anticipating that this debate will contribute to a sustainable model of understanding and coexistence of religions and cultures and, ultimately, to a sustainable world, starting from the wider geographical area of the Balkans and the Mediterranean, and its possible transformations by 2040.
