The upcoming event at Delphi also addresses the Hellenic Diaspora and foreign young scientists and artists, aspiring at strengthening their relations with this archaeological site which constitutes an important part of world heritage.
The underlying philosophy of the whole process is the active participation in the lessons, workshops, exhibitions, lectures, artistic happenings, outdoor activities and tours, as it is believed that the opportunity of acquiring knowledge through active participation is priceless.
