Pierce students qualify for final round of “My Bioethics” competition

Pierce C Lyceum students Maria Kollia (Humanities), Christina-Maria Kotsiara (Health Studies) and Fani Minaretzi (Sciences) carried out a project on the subject “To Live or Live Well” and qualified for the final round of the Panhellenic Student Competition “My Bioethics.”

The competition is organized by the National Bioethics Commission and the Laboratory for the Research of Medical Law and Bioethics, part of the Law School at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki on the subject of Bioethics. Our students chose to study the controversial social, ethical and religion dilemma of euthanasia, a subject that involves existential concerns and fundamental values. Their project will be in the form of a novel, whose plot highlights this particular dilemma and presents the thoughts and feelings of a patient, a doctor and the patient’s relatives (a Member of Parliament and a deeply religious person).

Man is the answer, whatever the question is” (André Breton)

The projects will be presented to an audience by the students themselves at a public event in October 2020. This event will be livestreamed.
