Lecture “How we live”

Februaty 2011

Member of our club Zuzana Ilincevova suggested the topic and delivered a lecture on it. She described shortly the evolution of settlements until building of bigger towns, cities, creation of satellite outskirts and how people behave in them. Recently people are influenced by new communications but the necessity of having personal contacts brings people together. She informed us about books and authors who write about this matter.

 

New friends – maybe future club members?

February 2011

Marie-Laure brought among us her friends Nicole Ospin from U.S.A. and Anne-Petra Sibbles from the Netherlands. They are not SI members in their countries but both would like to know how SI organization works and they are very interested in cooperation.

Get-together wit a glass of wine

Traditionally once a year we invite our friends to meet a well-known personality. This year our invitation was accepted by the owner of Cafe Imperial and restaurant Divinis in Prague, Mr. Zdenek Pohlreich. It was very interesting for all participants to meet in an unusual space of the classical building of our National museum and to talk to „known face“ from the TV screen and listen to his common troubles.
