We are initiative for quality of men's life

We don't have a manual for the "real" man, nor do we seek one. We encourage men to think about themselves and actively seek personal and social change.

Nowadays, the quality of life is determined by indicators such as access to health care, transport network or-for instance -the mobile network coverage. Men often measure it by three traditional criteria: power – glory – money. Nevertheless, both experts and men start to realize that the quality of life depends mainly on inner values.

LOM promotes 4 fundamental men’s values:

Responsibility, Courage, Originality and Openness

  • The one who is responsible keeps his word and gets socially engaged.
  • The one who is courageous appraises his chances and expands them as well,
  • The one who is original can be genuine and create new things.
  • The one who is open has its own opinion, but he is able to take part in a dialogue as well.

For the sake of men´s life quality:

  • We offer diverse activities and counseling.
  • We gather and share information and know-how.
  • We track and cultivate men’s issues.
  • We support and carry activities on expert, media and political level.

Our Mission:

We focus on issues that men in the Czech Republic and abroad currently deal with, We perceive the needs of individuals; we study the men’s roles in the society and track the claims society sets upon men. We are personally interested in it and we are having fun doing it! At the same time, we adopt an expert view. We are neither naive activists, nor self-styled gurus. We are professionals.

Topics that we raise:

  • Active Fatherhood – men are good caregivers, and they rjo it their own way
  • Men in Education – there should be male role models in schools
  • Strength and Violence – strenght is not a problem, but the violence is
  • Men’s Health – prevention is better than cure

We have an active attitude in face of each men’s issues. We do not want to be a part of problems, we look for solutions.
