Lectures for secondary students

The programme with secondary students is a CCCB work line for bringing the great debates of our times to young people. 

Citizens who are at an age of their lives for posing and asking themselves questions and in a vital phase that is essentially philosophical: it is brimming with doubts, insecurities and uncertainties, but also with energy and curiosity about the world. Within the framework of this project, the CCCB brings some of the leading thinkers of the contemporary world into dialogue with these citizens of the future, so that they can debate aspects that affect them in a direct way.
