Speakers’ Corner Projects
The Speakers’ Corner project originates in the establishment in Prague in 2004 of the first Speakers’ Corner on mainland Europe. It was the brainchild of Euan Edworthy, a British businessman based in the Czech capital, supported by Peter Bradley, then the MP for The Wrekin. The success of that initiative and the interest it generated around the world led to the founding of Speakers’ Corner Trust.
To date, SCT has focussed its energies on its UK programme. However, work funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has now begun on its first major international project in Nigeria.
