A youthful view of Czech elections and populism

February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

A talk on Zoom by Nina Fořtíková, a sixteen-year old Prague schoolgirl, about the attitude of her generation towards Czech political life.

She is not an average Czech teenager; when she was thirteen Nina joined a debating club which required wide reading on political matters.

Nina submitted an essay Why people prioritise optimism over their freedom to the BCSA writing competition in which she analyses why right-wing nationalist politicians are becoming ever more popular.

She attends one of Prague‘s international schools that teaches in English. Since autumn 2021 Nina has participated in an 18-month Microsoft programme, Council for Digital Good Europe. This is a 15-member team of students aged 14-16 years from the EU, UK and Switzerland.

To participate please email by Tuesday 15th February 2022. Login details will be sent to you in due course.
