Critical Thinking (online workshop)

What does it mean to "think critically"? Every day we are inundated with a vast amount of information from many different sources. That is why it is so important to think critically - but what does it actually mean? Do not accept information blindly, be able to think critically about it, evaluate it and evaluate its relevance.

In this online workshop, we will focus on techniques that train all these skills. At the same time, we will show you how to recognize argumentation fouls, prevent cognitive biases as much as possible, and reveal various manipulative techniques.


Goals of the workshop:

• Think critically about the received information

• Recognize manipulative techniques

• Explain how important it is to look at situations from different points of view

• Understand argumentative fouls and cognitive bias

• Ability to discuss, debate and present your ideas


The workshop is organized by Faketicky - a non-profit and student-led organization focusing on media education and critical thinking.

Guided tour - Mystery of Old Prague, Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales


Tour from the Powder Tower to the Astronomical Clock


Join us on the streets of Old Prague in search for the mythical Philosopher‘s journey or the so-called Kings road. House signs, paintings and sculptures on the houses and buildings of Old Prague hide a secret, they tell a story, the same story like the old myths, legends and fairy tales. Who can understand this story can find according to our ancestors a great treasure. Some people call it the Holy Grail, others the Philosopher's Stone, and it also has many other names. The map of this journey to the treasure, the journey to finding out, who we are, what is the meaning of our life and perhaps also to finding the (self)love, mercy or lightness of life is the Old Town Astronomical Clock.


WHEN: Monday, DECEMBER 9th, 2019, 17:30 - 19:00


MEETING POINT: 17:15 under the Powder Tower (Prašná brána), Prague 1
