Global Evidence Summit 2024: Explore Prague while supporting women in leadership

Anne Anderson

Cochrane, JBI, Guidelines International Network (GIN), and The Campbell Collaboration are hosting the second Global Evidence Summit (GES) in the historic city of Prague from 10 to 13 September 2024. The summit serves as a platform for professionals from diverse sectors, including health, education, social justice, environment, and climate change, to engage in crucial discussions aimed at informing policy and practice through evidence. As part of the GES experience, attendees are invited to participate in the Anne Anderson Walk, an event that combines sightseeing, social engagement, and philanthropy. 

Anne Anderson was a reproductive physiologist,  researcher, lecturer, and author. She was a contributor to the stream of thinking and effort that gave birth to evidence-based health care.  Her inclusion in Lifeology's Historic STEAM Heros shows her lasting influence. Each year, a walk is held in her honour. Participants make donations to support the Anne Anderson Award, which recognizes and stimulates individuals contributing to the enhancement of women’s visibility and participation in leadership.

Anne Anderson Walk

Everyone attending GES is welcome to join the  Anne Anderson Walk. It will be a gentle stroll on mostly flat surfaces and is wheelchair accessible. It is approximately 1.3 km long and will take about 50 minutes. The walk is free but participants are encouraged to make a donation to the Anne Anderson Award. This self-guided walk takes you a scenic journey through Prague's historic landmarks, including the renowned Old Town Square, the medieval astronomical clock, and the Bohemian Bridge. The walk concludes at the Vltava river, where attendees can continue their exploration with an optional boat cruise.

Join us for an unforgettable experience at the Global Evidence Summit 2024 and the Anne Anderson Walk. Let's come together to celebrate the power of evidence-based practice and honour the remarkable legacy of Anne Anderson.
