CENTRUM PARAPLE: 25 YEARS IN A FREE DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY
Text: By Alena Kábrtová, Faunder and First Director of Centrum Paraple
This fall, we’re celebrating 25 years of Centrum Paraple. In the previous Magazín issue, we looked back at our beginnings and remembered some of the people who helped us get the idea off the ground.
But what really made it possible was the Velvet Revolution of 1989 and what followed it. Had it not happened, have we not had freedom and democracy here for the last 30 years, it is almost certain there would have been no Centrum Paraple and other NGOs.
