Discussion on Czechoslovak November 1989 in Brussels

Cultural and social event called November? November! was held on November 25, 2019 in Brussels, organized by the Czech Fun Club. It is a format that combines a discussion on current socio-political or professional topic with the live music. The event was part of a series of regular meetings, which have been prepared and moderated for 12 years by Ladislav Miko, the current Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Slovakia, formerly the Minister of the Environment of the Czech Republic. Participants of these meetings are Czechs and Slovaks living and working in Brussels. 

On November 25, 2019, the event was attended by President IVO and fellow of the Europe’s Futures program in the Institute for Human Sciences (Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen – IWM) Grigorij Mesežnikov and Czech journalist Jindřich Šidlo (Seznam.sk). In a discussion moderated by Ladislav Miko, they debated on the diverse contexts of societal development initiated by the November 1989 revolution in Czechoslovakia in 1989. Speakers paid particular attention to the current situation in the two successor states, to similar and different characteristics of their societies today and possible scenarios for further development. 

The artistic guest of the event was the Moravian music group Tomáš Kočko & ORCHESTRA.
