Speakers’ Corner Trust "is a new charity, established in 2007, which seeks to provide a stimulus to civil society both in the UK and in emerging democracies overseas by creating new opportunities for citizens to exchange ideas and opinions in open, face-to-face debate.

"SCT’s founding patron is Vaclav Havel, the playwright, human rights campaigner and former political prisoner who became the first President of Czechoslovakia, and subsequently of the Czech Republic, following the collapse of communism in 1989...

"The Speakers’ Corner initiative is the outcome of a year-long consultation with a wide range of think tanks, government departments and NGOs. Our first UK pilot was launched in Nottingham in February 2008 and, following the development of a prototype in Prague in 2004, further projects both in UK and overseas are being considered." [1]
