Festival of Democracy
Associated program of the 21st annual Forum 2000 Conference
October 5–12, 2017, Prague and other cities
The Festival of Democracy is an associated program of the Forum 2000 Conference. The Festival includes lectures, discussions, exhibitions, and other cultural and educational activities that complement or further develop the conference topics. Events at the Festival of Democracy are organized by non-profits, universities and many other partners of the Forum 2000 Foundation. They take this opportunity to introduce their activities to the Festival attendees and offer a different perspective on the issues debated during the main Forum 2000 Conference program.
What is our mission?
The Festival of Democracy is a celebration of civic action as the cornerstone of a free and democratic society. We want to inspire public discussion about citizens’ shared responsibility for society, about tolerance and respect for human rights, about the world we want to live in, and about democracy. We want to encourage contemplation of the challenges the future will bring.
