The St. Adalbert Conferences have long been devoted to the issue of closer cooperation between the countries of the Central European area. The annual conference is devoted to a different aspect of Central European cooperation. The change, we are facing together, is not dissimilar in its impact to the situation ten centuries ago, when the basic map of the organization of Europe was being created. In Central and Eastern Europe at that time, the process of building national states was directly connected with non-violent christianization linked by the personality of St. Adalbert, whose legacy appeals to us even after a thousand years.

On the eve of the conference, the presentation of the St. Adalbert Award (Pretium Sancti Adalberti) is also held every year, with which the association Patrimonium Sancti Adalberti expresses recognition to personalities for their exceptional contribution to the strengthening of Central European traditions and values. At the end of each conference, its participants address the public and the political representatives of their countries in order to strive for the deepening of such cooperation.

The 2023 conference reflected in particular the fact that in the changing global order of the current world there is no alternative to closer cooperation between the countries of the Central European area.

Therefore, Central Europeans should not just wait for the outcome of the agreement of the great powers about a new world order, but should take the initiative at this moment and actively participate themselves in the process of defining and politically shaping the geopolitical space in which they live.

The discussion within the conference working groups focused on the following themes: The basic building block of Central European cooperation are nation states. For their healthy formation, it is necessary to renew national economic thinking, launch joint infrastructure projects and foster a pro-population policy, which alone testifies to the healthy development of society.
