What is Students' Forum 2000

snap from ngo market

The Students’ Forum 2000 initiative was created as a youth branch of the FORUM 2000 Foundation. The reason behind was to provide young people with the opportunity to reflect the mission of the FORUM 2000 and extend its scope with their visions and opinions.

Since 1998 the Students’ Forum 2000 organized annual conferences on various topics in close connection and cooperation with the FORUM 2000 conferences and was credited for its effort and results.

Over the years the Students’ Forum 2000 developed a wider field of activities. The most important were aimed at the development of civil society and resulted in the annual Market of Non-Governmental Organizations (or NGO-market) an exposition of the nongovernmental sector in Czech Republic with numerous foreign participants.

Additionally a variety of study sessions and seminars were organized to further develop the potential of youth actives within the nongovernmental sector. These activities deepened the theoretical overview of the various aspects of civic society and equipped the participants with practical skills which they used and are still using to run a broad specter of organizations and projects around the globe.

Presently the Students’ Forum 2000 is still in close connection with the mission and work of the FORUM 2000 foundation. Its members regularly participate at the preparation of the FORUM 2000 conference and acquire skills, knowledge and experience they use to prepare new projects of the Students’ Forum itself.

These new projects are closely related to the actual social and political development and are directed to the following fields of activities:

Students' Forum is organized under the auspices of Mr. Vaclav Havel, former president of the Czech Republic.
