"Due to popular demand, we are launching an international awards forum where students from across the world can be brought together and their voices can be heard. This year we are delighted to announce the inaugural International Young Philosopher Award. For this year’s International Prize, we ask international students to reflect on the topic of solidarity.
In a Covid-19 message, the President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins highlighted the need to show “Solidarity, Care, Compassion and Kindness” in our collective response to the pandemic. But solidarity might be important for facing numerous challenges (e.g., the environmental crisis, racism, war, etc). We ask students from all around the world to wear their thinking hats and share with us their philosophical thoughts on the topic of solidarity."
