Masaryk Days 2022

Masaryk Days
2–3 March 2022

You can watch the full programme live on our website. You can also attend the TGM commemoration in person.

This year's theme is Masaryk and education

While last year's theme focused on Masaryk's personality and his relations with people, this year's theme will focus on Masaryk and education, which is extremely topical. We will focus on it not only in the lectures and discussions on the first day, broadcast from the representative rooms of the Mendel Museum refectory, but also more practically, in the Education for Society conference programme, which will fill the second day. Given the precarious epidemic situation, both days will be held in a hybrid format without audience participation and both will be broadcast live.

While the necessity of holding such events online is not ideal, it brings with it one undeniable advantage over a face-to-face meeting: the recorded programme can be revisited at any time. We would be delighted if you would do so via this website and hope that you will find the outcomes of this or previous years' events inspiring throughout the rest of 2022.

About Masaryk Days

Masaryk Days began its tradition in March 2020, on the 170th anniversary of T. G. Masaryk's birth.

The purpose of the Days is to celebrate the legacy of the first Czechoslovak president and patron of our university through lectures, debates and high-quality cultural programmes, but also to reflect on current social issues.

“Yes, to teach someone to read and write, to give out general knowledge, to explain what is already known and written, is different from taking the responsibility that whoever listens to you will follow you and follow your words.”
