'What Good is Philosophy?' An Online Benefit Conference for Ukraine — Watch on Youtube March 17 to 19

‘What Good Is Philosophy?' – A Benefit Conference for Ukraine aims to raise the funds required to establish a Centre for Civic Engagement at Kyiv Mohyla Academy. This Centre will provide support for academic and civic institutions in Ukraine to counteract the destabilizing impact that Russia’s invasion has had on Ukrainian higher education and civilian life. By assisting Ukrainian students and scholars today, this Centre will also help pave the way for a vibrant and engaged post-war Ukraine.

Watch the conference online on the Munk School's YouTube channel from March 17-19, 2023 and support the creation of the Centre for Civic Engagement at Kyiv Mohyla Academy through the KMA Foundation.
