The purpose of the International Theory of Knowledge Conference, themed around knowledge and culture, is to bring together students from different cultures who are part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP). The conference encourages students to discuss their ideas under the theme of knowledge and culture, understand cultures by seeing and recognizing them, bring theory and practice together in a city with a rich cultural mosaic like Istanbul, and serve young people in understanding each other for the benefit of world culture and peace. The conference, the first of its kind organized by Eyüboğlu Educational Institutions, has garnered significant interest on international platforms.
