Why was the portal set up and what is it for?
The portal was set up under the Concept of the First World War Centenary Commemoration adopted by the Government of the Czech Republic via the resolution no. 253 of 16 April 2014 with the aim to serve as a centralized calendar of events and an information signpost for public to look up up-to-date information about the events organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of WWI.
It allows the organizers of commemoration events – public administration authorities, self-administration authorities and entities outside the public sector to upload and manage their own events after their registration. For the organizations established by the Czech Republic publishing commemoration events happening on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of WWI via the portal is mandatory. The authorized inter-governmental committee will therefore get an overview of the number and kind of organizations involved in the national commemoration and it will use the data from the portal for its activity.
