Forum 2000 at EXPO 2020

November 17, 2021

On November 17, 2021, the Forum 2000 Foundation, together with the Czech Pavilion at EXPO 2020, # díky, že můžem, Korzo Národní, and Opona organized a conference Building Bridges for a Global Future as part of the Czech program at EXPO 2020 in Dubai. First part of the conference was dedicated to the topic of interfaith dialogue and reflected upon Václav Havel´s concept of „a global moral minimum“; a minimum based on similar values and shared principles, common to all major world religions. The second part of the conference discussed the importance of education and of engaged citizens for a free, open, tolerant, responsible, and forward-looking society, as well as the key role played by activists and civil society movements.

The videos of panels Through Education to Tolerance and Civic Responsibility and How Successful Civil Society Movements Reach Their Goals can be found on our Facebook.
