About the speakers:
Professor Jan Macháček - Academic staff from University of Ostrava, Czechia responsible for the subjects of public administration, the geography of tourism, demography, and geographical excursions.
Macháček's research interests include environmental aspects of industrial activity, artisanal mining, and its socio-economic aspects. Artisanal mining (artisanal mining) employs tens of millions of people in the world and could be one of the tools for the development of less-developed regions, especially in developing countries. Another area of interest is the development of the Czech rural areas within the current demographic trends. The development of the rural areas (and cities) is followed by the concept of SMART cities, which has come to the fore in regional planning in recent years.
