- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: May 7, 2019, 17:00 – 19:00
What forms can civic engagement take? How are Czechs when it comes to getting involved in making changes? Is active citizenship a regular part of life here, or is it instead viewed as something suspicious?
Engagement in the public arena as one element of active citizenship will be discussed by dissident and Charter 77 spokesperson Dana Němcová, People in Need director Šimon Pánek, Scout Institute director Miloš Říha and the Czech spokesperson for Fridays for Future, the secondary school pupils’ climate campaign, Petr Doubravský.
The discussion will be chaired by Martin Churavý.
During the debate there will be a projection of selected photographs from demonstrations and happenings in the Czech Republic and abroad by Petr (Zewlakk) Vrabec.
Organised in cooperation with the Good Will Committee – Olga Havlová Foundation.
