Winds of Change in Budapest

Winds of Change in Budapest

Representing the Hungarian Europe Society, Györgyi Kocsis and Kata Nagy participated at the reception given by Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony, and Deputy Mayor Gábor Kerpel-Fronius on 20 November 2019 in the Capital City Hall to which more than ninety Hungarian civil organisations had been invited. "NGOs are going to be our living conscience" -  said Gergely Karácsony in his speech at the event, pledging that - in contrast to the past - in the future the Budapest local council is willing to cooperate with the civil sector as a partner in all its important decisions. A framework for this engagement has been laid out in the proposal for a structured dialogue sent to the Budapest Mayor by 20 NGOs, including the Hungarian Europe Society, cooperating in the "Civilizáció" coalition.

Kata Nagy participated at the workshop organised in the framework of the annual Forum 2000 held on 13-15 October 2019 in Prague in the American Center. The Hungarian Europe Society was a co-organiser of the event.
