Comenius has not finished his work on the improvement of human affairs. Are we going to finish it? Or will we – as a Comenius‘ nation – begin to work on the fulfillment of his visions in our 21st century?
We are offering to fulfill his vision to young people. To make and create projects in 7 areas of ‘human affairs’: Family, Government, Faith, Art, Multimedia, Creativity, and Education.
Comenius believed in what God said, that transformation of human and society is possible. Throughout his whole life even during difficult trials, he was able to hold on to hope. The basic presumption for improvement was to begin from an individual and continue to families, schools, and even nations.
To improve, it is necessary to be willing to act, to know, and to want (scire, velle, posse). Transformation must concern not only common sense but will, character, and whole human being. That won’t be possible without repentance, reconciliation, and return to God. In other words, improvement of what Comenius called „nexus hypostatocus“ – fundamental connection with the Creator. This concept of human improvement may seem foreign to us in the 21st century, however, Comenius regards this as the first key to the improvement of human affairs.
