The first Forum 2000 conference was held at Prague Castle in September 1997 on the initiative of President Václav Havel and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel. Prominent representatives of the world's religions and internationally recognized politicians, scholars, writers and artists came together to discuss three major topics: 

  • The World We Have Inherited 
    Burdens, Divisions, Values, Assets and Visions
  • Our World Today 
    Review of our main spiritual, intellectual, political and socio-economic harmonies, disharmonies and tensions
  • Hopes for the Future 
    Options, responsibilities and dilemmas in our quest for a better world
