We give space to those who have something to say. This year, we’re also continuing the tradition of nonprofit organizations at Rock for People. Some are dedicated to the environment, others to social issues, minorities or health prevention. What they all have in common is an active approach to the topic and doing important outreach. To activism. Let’s introduce them!

When we get up in the morning, make breakfast, brush our teeth, take a shower, we need water for everything. But we rarely think about how drinking water is created, how it gets into our homes, and how it is returned to nature. The interactive exhibition H2Ospodar! describes the journey of water from nature to households and back. Come and discover where drinking water, which each of us uses approximately 100 litres a day, originates and where it ends. You will also take away concrete tips on how to manage water better.

The DUHA Movement is a leading Czech environmental organisation operating since 1989. It promotes a healthy environment for life, diverse nature and a smart economy. It can move politicians and authorities, negotiate with companies and help households. It strives for a free and democratic society that is socially sensitive, peaceful, capable of critical reflection and bears its share of global co-responsibility. It promotes environmentally friendly approaches in agriculture (for a vision and concrete proposals, see the This is how I eat website), energy (for practical information, see the Energy for People website), forestry and waste management. It also helps on the ground: for example, it regularly organises volunteer events such as Weeks for the Countryside and Wolf and Lynx Patrols, and helps to insulate buildings to reduce their energy consumption.

OBRAZ is dedicated to the protection of animals in the Czech Republic. It focuses not only on educating individuals, but also on advocating for legislative changes and other systemic reforms. It has successfully campaigned to ban fur farms or cage farming of laying hens. Last year, they launched another major campaign that focuses on the conditions of broiler chickens. There are 140 million of them in the Czech Republic alone. They are currently preparing a unique AI exhibition, A Picture for a Picture. The paintings were created with the help of AI in collaboration with celebrities such as Tamara Klusová, Tomáš Zástěra and many others. The theme of the paintings always sticks to the idea of animals, because even in today’s advanced society, animals experience injustice and suffering on a daily basis and are considered as means of production exploited for profit by commercial companies. You will see some of them at RfP.
