1. Topic of the Contest: "THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS"
Immanuel Kant, one of the important figures of philosophy, has voiced in the 18th century that “People should use their own minds now.” Nowadays, we understand that “People should use the minds of machines.”
The amazing developments in science and technology have changed human life, which was primitive up to a few centuries ago, quickly. Thousands of people who have different lifestyle made an effort to adapt to these changes. Societies have experienced various management systems in the course of time. Countries set up the order to exploit other countries. Asymmetric income distribution occurred. Modern slavery and consumer labor force began to destroy world resources.
Within this context, the questions we encounter;
What will happen to people in the future if life goes like this?
How will the future of the person who has difficulty accepting rapid changes be created?
How do we make “human” the winner of all time?
How will we criticize today to solve the human problems?
In line with this context, we organize our competition with the subject "THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS"
