Following on from the success of 2014 when Elisabeth Dietz (Norway) and Izman Suhail (Maldives) were awarded two of the three gold medals of the Baltic Sea Philosophical Essay Event, this year Alexis Fonjallaz (Sweden) and Rachele Dal Cin (Italy) were placed in the top five students for their essay submissions and were awarded silver medals – a magnificent achievement. The competition is held each year by Baltic countries on the UNESCO World Philosophy Day – students from circa 15 countries participate in this essay competition with 150 essays submitted. The results were announced this afternoon in Helsinki. A fine end to a superb day of events to mark UNESCO Philosophy Day.
