Events and exhibitions already finished
The exhibition Wild for Life, organised by the Ministry of the Environment, was ceremonially opened at Václav Havel Airport Prague.
The exhibition, open until 12 December 2017 and situated between Terminals 1 and 2, was part of an international campaign against the trafficking of endangered species.
The Czech Republic is a transit country for sending, for example, tiger bones, rhino horns and pangolin scales from the Republic of South Africa to the Asian markets. Thanks to good cooperation between the airport’s Board of Customs and the Czech Environmental Inspectorate, the combatting of illegal trade has improved in our country and the Czech Republic has been evaluated as one of the most successful countries fighting against the illegal horn trade. To support endangered animals, the world-wide WILD FOR LIFE campaign was launched by the UN, more precisely the UNEP. The campaign uses social media and the website https://wildfor.life/ targeted at the general public to encourage personal involvement in fighting against illegal trading in endangered and protected species.
From 20 October 2014 until 15 January 2015, Václav Havel Airport hosted an exhibition mapping 20 years of the Czech Press Photo competition. The jubilee exhibition aimed to intermediate a view of interesting events of past years to the public via tens of photos which competed in this prestigious press photo contest.
Arriving at Václav Havel Airport Prague, you had a chance to see an exhibition of fifty photos of important Czech scientists. Large-format photos depicted both their personality and profession with creativity, hyperbole and humour and offered an original view of scientists not shown by any other cultural institution in our country. You could also enjoy seeing photos from their private lives. The exhibition was open between 16 November 2014 and the end of February 2015 in the public zone of Terminal 2.
