21st Anniversary of the Foundation
21 years. In some cultures, it’s only at this age that people are considered adults and granted full civil rights. The Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation has reached this exact age today, and could now raise a wineglass boldly and proudly even in the United States.
But instead of boisterous celebrations in the USA, the Foundation will opt for participating in the Czech Republic’s 2nd national congress of gastrointestinal oncology; instead of a road trip with a legally rented car, it will support international mobility for the scientific and cultural ideas flowing into and out of the crossroads that is Prague; and instead of running for Parliament, it will think over candidates for the VIZE 97 Prize.
In short, anniversaries never mean an end to charity work, which is an endless task. There is so much that needs to get done before The Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation reaches age 22.
