About us

We are an open platform that wants to bring together actors from different fields, such as geography, regional studies, sociology or philosophy.

At the same time, we are people who professionally come from different sectors: academic, private and public.

We were created as an independent platform that does not have its own legal personality and we are closely linked to the Department of Regional Development and Public Administration at the Faculty of Socio-Economics UJEP, which provides it with full support.

Forpolis is a free-form platform. It targets all regional development actors, whether they are  representatives, municipal councillors, mayors of municipalities or preparers of strategic and development documents of municipalities, consultants, the professional public, students as well as the general public interested in the issue of settlement development and community in the broadest sense of the word.

The mission of the Forpolis platform is to spread awareness among the general public, as well as among professionals. We are also dedicated to popularising regionalist and related topics among the general public. The Forpolis platform deals with topics that affect the development of municipalities and their influence on the state of the surrounding landscape.

Our facilities are kindly provided by the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences of Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem.
