Mendel days 2023

The lectures and workshops will present not only the new results of research on Mendel's remains and period artefacts, but also the importance and contribution of natural sciences to Czech and European society. The main theme of the Mendel Days will be a thematic lecture block called "in a Skácelovian way" The Four Elements: a prayer for water.

The element of water will be discussed in terms of its necessity for man and society, its availability and (lack of) sufficiency, with an emphasis on climate change and landscape transformations. The lectures will be complemented by talks, concerts and student workshops featuring not only Brno and Prague experts, but also Masaryk University PhD students. 

The main guest of the first day of Mendel Days 2023 will be Marek Orko Vácha, who, in addition to moderating the program, will present his reflection on the Biblical symbolism of water. The programme of the day will be closed by a concert of the Brno Cellists. 

The highlight of the Mendel Days will be the lecture "Water and Energy" by Dana Drábová, which we will welcome at the end of the second day of the programme. Mendel Days 2023 will close with a concert in memory of G. J. Mendel in the Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary on Mendel Square.
