“Non-profit organizations take care of us from birth to death, helping us in a number of areas. These include scouts, falcons, the Mountain Service, but also People in Need, Amnesty and Transparency, or volunteer firefighters, football and hockey. Non-profits form the backbone of our civil society, which is why the public needs to trust and support them, “they said in Such We Are.

“Each of us decides on the quality of our democracy. It is our common responsibility where we will continue to measure. We all decide the fate of this country. That is why we want to stimulate public discussion on key topics and involve society as a whole. This is also related to the reminder of Václav Havel’s legacy and ideas, which are getting bigger and bigger over time, “said Jan Gregar, spokesman for the event’s organizers from the Nerudný fest organization, adding that the event is not associated with any current political movement or party.

“We will abide by the applicable government regulations. A team of organizers and visitors’ volunteers will draw attention to the need to keep spacing and wear respirators on site. Information about security measures will also be on large images and digital information panels located in the square, “he added.
The National Promenade will also commemorate the Velvet Revolution. On Prague’s Národní třída, people will encounter street exhibitions, light installations, theater and audiovisual projections.
Among other things, the plan includes an outdoor projection on the facade of the May department store, focusing on the current political situation in Belarus. Visitors can also look forward to street exhibitions or educational walks mapping the period of communism, the events of the Velvet Revolution and the early post-revolutionary years. The street will also include elements alerting visitors to the applicable security measures.
