"Financiers, politicians, thinkers who have been changing the world – that’s Prague Twenty."
Prague Twenty (P20) is a non-profit organization founded in 2009, 20 years after the fall of communism in Central and Eastern Europe. Its core activity is the organization of conferences, lectures and other educational events in the field of politics, social sciences and culture, with the participation of leading foreign and national experts.

"Notable figures from all over the world take part in Prague Twenty’s seminars and conferences. Their views are confronted with Czech or "Central European" insights. We believe that by doing so we can improve our domestic intellectual debate, and consequently pave the way for future steps taken in the fields of economy and politics."
"Prague Twenty is a think-tank that may fit the role of being a broadly-oriented opinion platform. It brings qualified as well as novel insights on important issues, often trying to shed light on them from completely different angles or antagonistic sides."
"Since its very founding, Prague Twenty has aspired to introduce top international experts to a Czech discussion platform. By doing so, it has provided Czech professionals with a direct confrontation with intellectual trends of the colorful and challenging global environment."
"I appreciate the organization Prague Twenty very much, for it deals with really important topics. We only have very few platforms where such distinguished experts have lectured, and where usually an inspiring top-level debate evolves. Frankly, a few times already I have found myself listening to these wise and enriching lectures."
"A large turnout at the Prague Twenty’s seminars, as well as positive reports in the media reflect the fact that the new think-tank has filled an empty niche in the market. It takes into account the newest intellectual trends and is able to introduce them to the Czech general public."
"The think-tank Prague Twenty represents an almost unique platform in the Czech Republic. It covers a very broad range of topics which were discussed without any ideological preconceptions, which usually makes discussion less valuable."
