What have pupils’ parliaments, streets full of smiling people, entrepreneurs talking about their successes, and training videos for adults and children all got in common? They are all parts of projects aimed at developing an active civil society, social innovation, and education and training in the Czech Republic. These are precisely the kinds of projects that the Karel Janeček Foundation has been supporting since it was established in 2014. In the time since then, it has supported a number of unique projects. Here’s a brief summary of 16 of them.
