Dear ministers, ladies and gentlemen,

In my short intervention I would like to remind you about the history. In 1991 I was a member of the small organizational team of the first conference in Dobříš and cooperated with Josef Vavroušek for several years.

First ideas of the EfE process were initiated as far back as 1968 when Josef Vavroušek participated in a student expedition to deliver medical aid to Lambaréne, traveling by truck through whole Africa. He had the opportunity to see this continent from the inside which inspired him - as a technician - with ideas of sustainable development and also to ideas of promoting human values. Vavroušek developed philosophical insight into systemic issues of SD and these deep, complex and overarching thoughts were an important impulse for rethinking educational discourse in the following years.
