One World in Brussels
This year's One World Festival in Brussels will take place from 31 May to 4 June 2021.
If the pandemic situation allows, the festival will be held in a hybrid form – part of the programme will run online and part under strict measures offline.
If physical attendance is not possible, One World in Brussels will take place exclusively online. Either way, one thing is for sure: we are not cancelling the festival this year!
One World in Brussels is organised by People in Need in co-operation with the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU, the Czech Centre in Brussels and the European Parliament. Viewers have the opportunity to watch a selection of the most important documentaries on human rights screened at One World in the Czech Republic. The screenings will be followed by debates with defenders of human rights, filmmakers, politicians and representatives of the international community of non-profit organisations. In this way, One World in Brussels goes to the heart of major European institutions in order to draw attention to serious cases of human rights violations.
Permanent local partners include the Human Rights and Democracy Network, Bozar – Centre for Fine Arts, the Prague House, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway, EUROPEUM, the House of European History and the United Nations Regional Information Centre. Other partners from non-governmental and international organisations take part in individual screenings and Q&As.
