Venue

Konferenční centrum City (KCC)
Na Strži 65/1702
Prague 4

How to reach the KCC:

By subway

Take line C until you reach Panrkác metro station and then take either escalator up to the next level where you will have to take an additional escalator or stairs to reach ground level.  Once outside you can clearly see the KCC, which is situated approximately 150m from the metro station.

By car

If travelling northbound from Brno on Highway D1, follow the E50 route, which then becomes 5. Kvetna (May 5th Street) or locally known as ‘Magistrala’ and is more of an inner-city highway or boulevard than a typical city street.  From there you should easily recognize the Arkády shopping center on your left-hand side, where you can find parking.

Parking Information

Ample parking has been made available for all visitors in the Arkády shopping center parking lot located less than 100m from the KCC. Please note in advance that the first 3 hours of parking there are free and any additional time is 40 Czech crowns per hour.

PRIDE model of practice conference in Prague

Prague, Sept. 7- 9, 2017

The purpose of the conference was to provide a meeting place for experts who use PRIDE model of practise as a tool for improving the care for children in foster and adoptive families. More information about PRIDE can be found at www.cwla.org. Representatives of many European countries and USA  have been invited to a conference in Prague. The conference thus provided an opportunity to share examples of good practice, to gain inspiration for the further development of PRIDE implementation in the various national systems of care for children at risk. The costs of organizing the conference were covered by the EEA / Norwegian Funds program.
