Review of the networking meeting 16 May 2020

Almost 25 event organisers took part in the Skype-networking-meeting on 16 May and exchanged views on whether there is a will to organise a festival or a series of events throughout Switzerland under a common label.

Given that the Swiss Philosophical Society and most of the philosophical institutes of the universities also support the project, most of the private participants also expressed their positive and motivated opinions. All participants as well as all those organizations that were not present on 16.05.20 are invited to fill out the online survey at https://www.philosophie.ch/festival by the end of June at the latest and to discuss their ideas with each other there. On 13 June 2020, a Skype networking meeting will take place again, which will focus on the groups in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and will deal with the same topics as the meeting on 16 May.

At the opening of the meeting, Anja Leser (Philosophie.ch management) as well as Dr. Ilaria Fornacciari (Head of the Italian section) and Emilie Bretton (Event Management) presented the general goals of Philosophie.ch as a platform: „We are driven by the motivation to make philosophy better known in society. As a result of this, we attach great importance to presenting the academic philosophy. As an online portal we serve as a communication channel for people interested in philosophy. The criterion for all entries on the portal is therefore – quite simple: A professional philosopher must be involved. One of our goals is to give equal consideration to all participants. We try to emphasize that such a small community should always be about cooperation than competition. And this brought us to the question - and this is the question we are now asking everyone involved in the meeting today - why not organise a joint event?


Benefits of joint activities

From our point of view it makes sense to organise something together and if possible nationwide. In the foreground is that every local actor can present himself. The "nationwide framework" thus serves to draw more attention to the philosophy. All participants should benefit from this framework as an advertising channel. Our idea would be to use the portal as an umbrella organisation. It goes without saying that we can only accomplish this task if the community assigns it to us. And therefore we pursue a participatory approach. What does that mean? Neither the format, nor the theme, nor the title, nor the time of the joint event have been determined yet. In order that the event can actually be realized in a way that benefits the participants, the discussion is hereby opened. Since not everyone present at the meeting may be able to give their input on all points today, we have created an online survey. You are cordially invited, as well as all other organizations that are not present today, to make your voice heard. We will send the evaluation together with a basic concept to everyone in two months time. We have sorted the survey by: Aim, Format, Content, Planning and an open discussion.“
