Central Europe, the EU and myself

WINNERS of the competition

In 1989 our region, Central and Eastern Europe rose up. The countries of the region regained their freedom and independence, and they started on their path of democratization and development. Finally, in 2004, the V4 countries joined the European Union, an area of freedom and democracy.  For many, these events are part of their everyday lives, for others, this is already history. We are looking for the latter!

The Hungarian Europe Society and its partners - as part of the 'EUritage' consortium led by WiseEuropa, a Warsaw-based think-tank - announce an essay competition for Hungarian high school and university students. Essays of maximum 1.000 word must be written in English and should reflect on the years of the democratic transition or the effects of EU integration in the region.

Youth, Democracy, Inclusiveness


In the framework of the Citizen-rights project trainers of the Foundation for Democratic Youth in co-operation with the Hungarian Europe Society held sessions about democratic rights and responsibility for altogether hundred students of the Petrik Lajos Bilingual Secondary School, the Alternative Secondary School of Economics, the Városmajori Secondary School and the Politechnikum between November 2015 and January 2016.
