Ever since 2001, when the Heart of Europe international debating tournament was founded by John L. Wickham, it has been bringing people together from various cultures all over the world in a spirit of friendship and learning.
The meaning behind the name of the tournament is not only a description of its central location, but also a reference to the role that the Czech Republic, or previously Czechoslovakia, tried to play throughout the 20th century – being a bridge between the East and the West.
So far, the tournament has seen people from 5 different continents, and on a regular basis it serves as a safe place for free exchange of ideas between representatives of all of the different major world religions and secular political persuasions.
