About the Project
The NGO Market is the largest event of its kind in Central Europe. Its aim is to present the activities of non-profit organizations to the general public, to strengthen the capacities of people working in NGOs, and to support networking between the non-profit sector and its partners.
This year's NGO Market, which has been moved to the autumn due to extraordinary circumstances, will take place on Saturday, October 10, 2020 on Strelecky Island in Prague, sharing the date and venue with the Festival of Democracy. This one-day-unique connection between the NGO Market and the Festival of Democracy will create an inspiring space for public discussion under the motto „Let´s talk together“. We will come together and work on how to contribute to the improvement of the environment around us and take responsibility for the world we want to live in. It´s up to us!
About 120 non-profit organizations from a wide range of fields, including social work, development aid and human rights, ecology, culture, and education, as well as their partners like businesses, embassies, and public bodies, will be present at the fair. More than 1,500 people visit the fair every year. NGO Market visitors will be able to try and participate in NGO activities. NGO representatives will also have the opportunity to take part in capacity-building workshops and discussions within the Festival of Democracy.
