Prague European Summit 2020

A high-level European policy forum with the spotlight topic on climate change

We are honoured to invite you on behalf of the organisers, EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy and Institute of International Relations Prague, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic and the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic, to register for the sixth year of Prague European Summit (PES) held on 18-19 November 2020.

The sixth edition of the Summit will focus on topics relating to policy shifts in a changing global climate. The latter certainly does not concern only climate change as a significant political, economic and social challenge but also, and perhaps more importantly, the changing rules of multilateral, diplomatic and security order in today’s global political landscape. While reflecting on the current COVID-19 pandemic, the purpose of this year’s edition is to demonstrate that the survival and resurgence of international cooperation, as well as trade and security mechanisms are key components to achieve sustainable development of the global community.

PES held on 18-19 November 2020 will be organised in a hybrid format with virtual studio in the Czernin Palace, Prague. Due to current epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic, there will be no audience, only virtual participation is possible.

Please register by clicking on the "invitation link" below, type the invitation code and complete your registration. The conference will be conducted solely in English. National and international media will cover most sessions.

More information

Since 2015, the Prague European Summit (PES) has been a regular platform for active debates on the future of the European Union and on improving the lives of Europeans. The Summit is organised by two leading Czech think-tanks, the Institute for European Policy EUROPEUM and the Prague Institute of International Relations, under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, the Prague City Hall and the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic, and in cooperation with the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic. The main goal is to ensure strategic, open and inspiring debate between high-level public officials, academia, business and the civic sector, including young people.

Since its first edition, more than 2,000 participants have attended Prague European Summit and more than 800 people participated in the public discussions called “Urban Talks”. PES also invited so-called "New Voices" — cross-disciplinary people who brought new opinions and provocative ideas to the debates on the future of Europe. PES succeeded in attracting personalities such as A. Wess Mitchell (Assistant Secretary, Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, U.S. Department of State), European Ombudsman Emily O'Reilly, former President of Latvia Vaira Vike-Freiberga, Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans, the prime ministers of the Visegrad Group countries, former Irish Minister of European Affairs Lucinda Creighton, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Media of Bavaria Florian Herrmann, Nobel Prize laureate Jean-Marie Lehn, Chair of the European Association of long-term investors Laurent Zylberberg, Managing Director of IMF Kristalina Georgieva, European Commission Vice-President for Values and Transparency Věra Jourová and many more. The Summit offered more than 90 discussions of various formats.

The Future European Leaders Forum (FELF) is also part of the Prague European Summit. It is a platform for learning, networking, dialogue-building, and opportunities for young exceptional personalities (future prospective European leaders) to meet and seek a lively network of leaders. More than 70 young people have already participated at different types of lectures and workshops, one to one mentorships, including meeting with high-ranked personalities that influence political decision-making.

The 6th summit will be held on 18-19 November 2020 with the spotlight topic on climate change. Reflecting on the critical junctures facing the EU, whether related to the new Commission's appointment or Brexit, this year's high-level conference will also focus specifically on EU Leadership & Security Challenges, New Technologies and Digital Age, current Economic and Foreign Policy Challenges and finally the impact of various policies on the European Society.
