In recognition of their efforts to raise awareness about the reality of climate change in the Czech Republic, the UN Information Centre in Prague, awarded the “The Facts on Climate” group its annual Climate Communication Prize, for 2020.

The volunteer-based organization, said the jury, has also cultivated “reliable and science-based discussion” about the issue. Its founder, Ondráš Přibyla, a young Czech physicist and a lecturer in the field of communications focussed on non-violence, says that his aim has been to build bridges between science and the general public.

UNIC Prague’s Michal Broza spoke recently with Mr. Přibyla and his team colleague Kristýna Zákopčanová, in their native city of Brno, in the Czech Republic.
