The Czech National Trust promotes and supports the conservation, protection and maintenance of cultural heritage in the Czech Republic; a cultural heritage of international importance. It aims to inspire, foster and promote the development of an effective voluntary and donor culture in the Czech Republic.
Czech Republic has an exceptional number of historical buildings and objects. The communist era was not kind to cultural monuments.
It left properties uncared for, changed their use – often to their detriment- and instilled in the people a feeling that heritage had nothing to do with them. We want to help Czech National Trust to reverse the tide; to grow awareness and pride within local communities and help them love and adopt these places and start a grassroots movement to preserve them for future generations. The National Trust in the UK is certainly something to aspire to with its many wonderful places, thousands of volunteers and millions of members. We intend to also connect the Czech National Trust to other international organisations who will help them to succeed.
