Ubuntu Day

The Ubuntu philosophy has long been embraced and explored at CLIB. Once again, at the end of the school year, CLIBBERS dedicated a day and different activities to reflect on this philosophy of life. 

Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning ‘humanity to others’. It is often described as reminding us that ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. 

This african expression that condenses a philosophy of living, independente from any country, culture, religion or politic orientation. Its a humanistic phislosophy that is deeply connected with the human being, meaning that “I am because you are”, and I can only be a human being through others human beings. I am who I am because of you. 

Desmond Tutu explained it this way: “One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu — the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation.
