Fellow Since 2007
This description of Marek Cernocky's work was prepared when Marek Cernocky was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Marek Cernocky is creating a new way to fund citizen activities in a sustainable and renewable manner by constructing one of the biggest river water electric power plants in the Czech Republic, then using the profits from the power plant to fund charitable activities specified in the statute of Marek’s organization. This is the first program of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe, and it expands how the citizen sector operates.
