Scope and impact of floods in the river basin Polečnice
MAXA, Václav
The preparation of the bachelor thesis includes the collection of information on the issue, especially the theoretical part focuses on the study of legislation and the use of Internet resources. The aim of the author in the theoretical part is to explain important concepts in the field of flood and related topics. The individual chapters focus, for example, on the flow of the Polečnice river, types of floods in our country, levels of flood activity, legislation in the field of floods, as well as preparations for floods and warning the population. The practical part contains a description of the Český Krumlov district and the floodplain of the Polečnice river, then the two biggest modern floods in our country are described, namely the devastating floods of 2002 and 2013. Furthermore, the modification of the riverbed of the Polečnice river, which served to create the necessary flood protection measures on the Polečnice river. And last but not least, a questionnaire survey. In the questionnaire survey 100 sheets with 12 questions were evaluated. The questions focused on the general overview of the citizens of Český Krumlov about the flood issue and their awareness of situations caused by floods, such as protection of health, lives and property, related warnings to the population and their evacuation. And whether they are aware of the threat of danger from the Polečnice river, which at first glance may not seem dangerous at all. The evaluated data indicate that the inhabitants of Český Krumlov rather underestimate the risk of floods in the town of Český Krumlov. Some inhabitants do not even know that partial flood protection measures have been carried out on the Polečnice in the recent past. The only positive thing I see is that nowadays, thanks to the technology we have, citizens have the opportunity to get information about the situation quickly and thus be better and more quickly prepared for a possible emergency.

Wolfová, Magdaléna ; Tušková, Eva (advisor) ; Dobiášová, Karolína (referee)
The subject of this diploma thesis is the involvement of users of psychiatric care in the process of planning and realization of psychiatric care reform at the macro level of policy making. The aim of the research is to describe and understand this involvement. In the research are describer possibilities of participation in the phases of involvement, its form, purpose, formal regulation of opportunities, expectations of respondents, perceived power and barriers in involvement. The data was collected during interviews with key actors and studies of relevant documents. The results relate to the theoretical concepts of coproduction, patient-oriented care, strategic and human rights documents (the Convention on the Human Rights of People with Disabilities). The element of power is described through the typology of Sherry Arnstein's participation ladder. Evidence of interviews indicates elements of tokenism and disadvantages. There is a low (one-person) representation of users in reform bodies, lack of time for discussion in consultative bodies, lack of information and lack of capacity (people, time, resources) for greater development of patient organizations. Respondents have identified barriers as the socio-economic situation, lack of capacity for macro-level involvement, mental health constraints or...
Citizenship - Theoretical Bases and Teaching Practice
Bucvanová, Eliška ; Moree, Dana (advisor) ; Skovajsa, Marek (referee)
Eliška Bucvanová. Diplomová práce. Citizenship - Theoretical Bases and Teaching Practice ABSTRACT IN ENGLISH Weak civil society can be seen as a possible drawback of Czech democracy. One of the possible ways of building it is citizenship education provided within the compulsory school system. Citizenship is also the main subject of this work, which uses qualitative research methods to find out how the concept of "citizenship" is understood by teachers at a selected primary school, what information they provide to pupils on this subject and how. Since the scope of the paper would be insufficient, it does not intend to map the state of citizenship education in the Czech Republic: its aim is to find out how teachers approach the subject and whether their opinions coincide, and to compare their views with the information contained in literature. The results of the work show that the selected school is at a comparatively high level; however, the teachers' attitudes to citizenship education and its aims lack consistency and comprehensiveness and, also, the pupils' knowledge highly varies. This can be due to the fact that citizenship education has long been in need of an integrated approach and, very probably, also training opportunities for teachers that would help them develop their professional skills.

Philosophy and community
Timingeriu, Filip ; Hogenová, Anna (advisor) ; Blažková, Miloslava (referee)
Master's thesis "Philosophy and community" looks into the origin of ancient greek term "polis" and inception of its citizen. It looks into it as specifical means of being of world and human. The correlation of polis and citizen is most apparent in philosophy of Plato. With an emphasis on his privilegy of spoken word over written one, he shows possible sources of philosophical hermeneutics. By understanding the situation, which leads to the decline of the reciprocal relationship between human and world, author would like to express that in Platos way of thinking are still unreflected possibilities of solution for the present day. Intention of this work is to contribute - by sketching and explication of the principles of political thinking - to the discussion - and not only to that of the political philosophy and political science.

Citizen and public space as a mutual relationship: Why to teach about it?
Vecan, Ján ; Samek, Tomáš (advisor) ; Dvořáková, Michaela (referee)
The aim of the diploma thesis is to describe the relationship between the citizen and public space, and to answer the question why the topic of public space should be incorporated in secondary school curriculum. The first chapter introduces the concept of public space. I look at public space through the lens of normative theory, based on which I assess its characteristic features. In the first chapter, I also deal with the mass media and social networks, which are an integral part of public space. The second chapter focuses on urban public space. In this chapter I look for answers to the questions: what is the relationship between the citizen and the public space, how do they influence each other. The citizen and the public space are inextricably linked, because it is the citizens who transform a physical place into public space. Further, the question of the quality of public spaces is raised, to which I answer using the basic principles of architecture and urbanism. The second chapter also answers the central question of the diploma thesis: why the topic of public space should be taught in school. The third chapter presents the results of a simple questionnaire survey. It captures the opinions of interview participants on the current state of public space in Slovakia, its positive and negative...
