This year’s NGO Market will present almost 200 organizations, most of which are dedicated to social services and health care. However, many organizations devoted to education, training and research; culture, sports and leisure-time activities will be present as well, together with NGOs concerned with human rights and democracy promotion; crisis, humanitarian and development aid; environment and last but not least, religion and religious studies. The list of participating organizations can be found here.

The fair of non-profit organizations will be traditionally enriched by various accompanying events such as workshops, practical examples of NGO activities, music, volunteer offers and also projections of documentaries about civil society. Particular attention will be given to the theme of active aging, which will be presented in cooperation with project partners at the fair as well as during the accompanying events.
