The original idea behind Stoicon-x was that, for people who couldn’t make it to the main Stoicon event, there could be smaller regional meetings, featuring speakers and workshops for those who want to learn more about Stoicism. Now that Stoicon has gone online, these local Stoicon-x events are an opportunity to hold physical events in a variety of locations around the world.

Are you interested in organizing a Stoicon-x event?
For those who might be interested in planning and hosting a Stoicon-x, we have developed a set of very useful and thorough guidelines – you can download the guidelines here. Stoicon-x events don’t have to be all that large – they can feature just a few talks, workshops, or other activities – the key is that they are well-organized for their participants.
We ask organizers of Stoicon-x events to sign a licence agreement before using the ‘Stoicon-x’ name. You can download the license agreement here..
