On One Boat 2018

The idea of the summer party Non-Profits and For-Profits On One Boat is based on the experience that the most interesting things are usually being heard not at conferences but at the after-parties. Debates and presentations are important but cannot replace inspiring conversations that can happen when people with the same vision have the chance to meet and talk.

For the fourth time, more than 300 extraordinary people from the civic society and business will meet on One Boat. Our aim is to help overcome the prejudices of both sectors and help leaders from both areas to join forces and look for new solutions.

This year, again, an unforgettable party will take place on the Cargo Gallery boat. Come to meet people from the business and civic sector as well as changemakers. In addition to the opportunity to get known new people, there will be also four civic initiatives dealing with solutions of indebtedness, system change in education and defense of the constitutional order. They will present their advocacy goals for next year and offer opportunities for direct involvement:

In addition, the new Forum for Advocacy founded by Open Society Foundation will be presented. This platform connects representatives from civic and business sector aiming for system change.

When: 31. 7. 2018 – the boat is open from 17:30

Location: Cargo Gallery Boat, Hořejší nábřeží 5, Praha 5 (river bank on the Smíchov side)

For the second time, the winner of the Watch the impact! Award will be announced. This Prize is awarded by the Impact Academy initiative in partnership with Ashoka recognizing the best Annual Reports that capture and present the social impact of the organization

WARNING! This year the boat is anchored on the Smíchov side of river!
