Festival of Democracy 2020
The associated program of the 24th Forum 2000 Conference
October 9 – November 17, 2020, online
The Festival of Democracy is the associated program of the Forum 2000 Conference. Our mission is to celebrate civic activity as a cornerstone of a free and democratic society. We want to inspire public discussion about the responsibility of citizens for society, about tolerance and respect for human rights, about the world we want to live in and about democracy. We want to learn to listen and speak with each other because our shared future is in our hands.
A festival during which crucial current issues are discussed and ideas and visions for our democratic future are put forward. An event in which everyone who upholds democratic values will need to take part.
Festival of Democracy 2020 online
October 9 – November 17, 2020
Due to ongoing pandemic, the Festival of Democracy 2020 was held online. You can review many online fruitful online discussions which took place from October 9, 2020, until November 17, 2020.
One of the main aims of this project is to inspire public discussion - and this year was no exception. Discussions were traditionally organized in cooperation with partners of the Festival of Democracy.
In cooperation with Political Science Club of Faculty of Social Sciences, we talked about human rights in Czech foreign policy, with representation of the European Commission in Czech Republic we discussed how Europe is going to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic and with Ekodomov, we opened the topic of community projects and environment in the Czech Republic.
We invite you to review stream recordings of all events here.
We are happy that we managed to connect with you online and that you joined us for our discussions. 15 events in cooperation with 15 of our partners took place within the framework of the Festival of Democracy and none of them would be possible without support of many more organizations and individuals. Thank you all who have been helping us to connect communities and strengthen and educate a civil society.
