DECIDE – Promoting inter-generational civic initiatives on Earth Day in Ujbuda, Hungary



The Earth Day organised within the project DECIDE by the Municipality of Ujbuda in partnership with the National University of Public Services, Hungary, took place on 22th April 2015. The traditional annual event promotes active participation and reunites more than 1000 people from all the local community. Students of the University worked together with the Municipality with the aim to foster communication and togetherness between generations.

The event took place in two different locations and was led together by children from kindergartens, elementary schools and the elderly from the district. The children, university students, adults including sportsmen of the Hungarian water-polo team and the elderly have exercised and painted the sky together with balloons at the Lake Feneketlen after the welcome speech of mayor Hoffman Tamás. Numerous activities awaited members of all generations in the morning at Bikás Park including the billboard exhibition of students of the University aiming to popularize the 60+ Active Aging Programme of the municipality. The innovative cooperation between the university and the local government provides an excellent opportunity for future public servants to gain experience and practice in the field.
