Václav Havel, first president of independent Czech Republic
„I very much appreciate this initiative (…) I think that it is good and important mainly because of the fact, that as very young people (…) you live from the beginning with the feeling, that you are not only citizens of this republic, but also inhabitants of this planet, which is, as we know, throughout connected and more and more interconnected and faith of each of us, one way or another, directly or indirectly influences lives of others.”
Purpose of the project is support of participants in their development and independent responsible approach to future studies. The goal of the project is professionally ready, civil active, self-confident and at the same time modest, listening young person with interest in the world around them, able to think independently, speak publicly, factually argue and react quickly. I am convinced, that such a young person is also an excellent student and simultaneously goal of pedagogues.
