Congrats to kultúrAktív: 10 Years of Built Environment Education

kultúrAktív is a public benefit non-governmental organization dedicated to sensitizing children and young people to the built environment. Founded in 2010 by Eszter Tóth and Ágnes Sebestyén, the association organizes activities that inspire youth to discover, observe, and understand their immediate and extended environment, and to participate in shaping it. In 2020 kultúrAktív celebrates its 10th anniversary – and has a lot of plans and ideas for the future:

“We would like to spend the following 10 years  with performing activities, which strengthen the relationship between people and their neighborhoods. We are dreaming of individuals and communities, who consciously and constructively shape their own neighbourhoods on a daily basis; people who are attached to and feel responsible for their neighborhoods.”

This small, beautiful, ancient, geographically varied, linguistically diverse and culturally rich nation on the western edge of the British mainland.
