STRATPOL in cooperation with partner institutions from Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic has been awarded a Strategic grant from the Visegrad Fund for the realization of a project titled Our.Future: Visegrad 2025.
The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating.
Which global trends will mostly shape the regional environment? What development should we expect in technology and economy and what ideas will move public opinion in Visegrad? How should we most effectively strengthen Visegrad cooperation in the coming years?
The project seeks to promote the V4 through imaginative exploring of its near and midterm future and the analysis of the past and present developments in the region. Forward-thinking, discussing the common future, favouring innovation and creativity are the best ways to support mutual understanding between V4 citizens.
The project is completely unique in its scope and multidisciplinary approach. By focusing on the past, present, and future developments we aim to provide a complex look at the V4, effectively promoting the V4 and raising public awareness of the V4 cooperation.
The main outcome of the project is a comprehensive report and policy suggestions for the V4 regarding digitalization, education, economic trends, and demographic currents, environment, and security. You can access the report here:
Two online events were organized in order to present the report and hold a discussion over its policy suggestions – one for stakeholders (policymakers, ambassadors, and other state representatives), one for the general public.
Our.Future: Visegrad 2025 was a cooperative project of partners from Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.
The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
