Past Events

Stoics Care Conference (April 2022)

The Stoics Care conference was a collaboration between Stoicare, Modern Stoicism, and The Stoic Fellowship, in affiliation with The Aurelius Foundation and Stoics in Action. The event included Stoics from all over the world--scholars, teachers, community volunteers, and people from all walks of life–who are committed to helping others. We learned about the theoretical basis for social and environmental care in Stoicism. We heard practical advice to improve our lives and communities. We experienced a keynote address from Donald Robertson, talks on compassion, sustainability, self care, and more. 

The entire Stoics Care conference is available for viewing on the Modern Stoicism YouTube channel.
