In addition to education and research, the mission of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (AMU) includes cultivating the public debate and taking part in addressing societal issues. Accordingly, in 2020 AMU set up its Environmental Panel that assesses its existing practice in terms of environmental impact and suggests measures to minimise the impact.
The Environmental Panel works as an advisory body to the Rector and the Academic Senate of AMU. Its task is to identify the intersections of environmental sustainability and the operation of a public educational institution, both in terms of ideas and practice.
AMU considers the issue of environmental sustainability a key issue that AMU and society at large will have to deal with in the future, and is aware of its role as an educational institution that indirectly influences the future forms of environmental policy through its educational activities.
