Annual Conference 2019

Course
Monday 12th November - Monday 10th December 2018

Christian Democracy is one of the key ideas which shaped post-war Europe. It is a way of thinking which is deeply rooted in the social teachings of the Roman Catholic Church; however, paradoxically, it was regarded with suspicion by several Popes in the pre-war period.
Its ethos was, for a while, deeply inspired by Roman Catholicism yet its appeal in some countries transcended religious divides. As a political ideology, it is firmly in the centre of the political spectrum, thus drawing criticism from both left and right. It centres on the idea that the human person – rather than the individual – should be placed at the heart of the political process. Some credit Christian Democracy with keeping Europe at peace in the post-War period. However, its future now seems somewhat dubious.
This short course (to be delivered in English) looks at various aspects of Christian Democracy including its development, its core ideas, its principles and values, its leading figures and its future. A discussion / Q&A session will follow each talk.

Lectures take place at the Volunteer Centre, 181, Melita Street, Valletta from 6.30pm to 8pm.

FULL payment & registration on first day of course: Members of the Foundation, students and senior citizens pay €15. Non-members pay €25.

Participants attending 80% of lectures will be given a certificate of attendance.

Taħdita Pubblika:
L-Erbgħa 5 ta' Diċembru, 2018

Sa mill-invenzjoni tan-nar u r-rota, il-bniedem dejjem fittex li jiddomina l-ambjent ta' madwaru billi juża l-intellliġenza tiegħu u javvanza fit-teknoloġija li juża fl-aspetti kollha tal-ħajja. 

Jekk inħarsu lejn l-istorja naraw li fl-aħħar mija-mitejn sena rajna żviluppi kbar, fosthom it-twettieq tal-ħolma li l-bniedem itir, il-ħakma tal-qawwa tal-enerġija atomika, u t-teknoloġija tal-kompjuters bl-intelliġenza artifiċjali.

Dawn l-iżviluppi qed iwasslu lil xi wħud biex iwissu li għad naslu fi stadju fejn ix-xenarji ta' films bħal The Matrix,Terminator u Blade Runner iseħħu fir-realta'.

Vera waslana qrib li t-teknoloġija ssir is-sid tal-bniedem? X'inhuma l-indikaturi li qed naraw bħalissa? Fit-taħdita tiegħu Martin Debattista se juri sett ta' cartoons u ritratti li mistennija jqanqlu diskussjoni dwar din it-tema.  
It-taħdita se tkun bil-Malti u se ssir fil-5 ta' Diċembru, 2018, fiċ-Ċentru tal-Volontarjat, 181, Triq Melita, Valletta, bejn is-18.30 u 20.00.

Kulħadd huwa mistieden. Dħul b'xejn.
