The 23rd annual Forum 2000 Conference will be held in Prague on October 13 – 15, 2019 under the title "Recovering the Promise of 1989". The event will host a wide range of illustrious personalities from number of fields – politicians, philosophers, authors, activists and dissidents, policy analysts, entrepreneurs, or artists. Discussions will examine today´s challenges and search for ways to renew the spirit of responsibility and strengthen democracy. It will also look at how the internal uncertainties of the democratic “West” and the rise of China, India and other actors are reshaping the world and how these converging trends will affect our common global future in the next 30 years. The conference will engage the younger generation to share their views on these issues and discuss ways to renew trust in democracy and its values.
