How to Participate

The participation to the Forum 2000 Conference is upon invitation, although limited number of spots is reserved for the public. The registration is required to participate as an observer of the discussions held at Žofín Palace and Goethe-Institut. However completing the registration form does not guarantee you the access to the conference, and each application must be confirmed by organizers. Once your registration is confirmed we expect your participation during the whole duration of the conference.


Each year over 3,000 observers attend the conference and the Festival of Democracy, including representatives of government, academia, civil society and business as well as students from around the world and the general public. Participation for observers is free of charge, but the capacity is limited. Some of the conference proceedings are broadcast live on our website. You can also participate in the discussions via social networks.

Discussions and other events held within the Festival of Democracy are open to the public with no registration.
