null The NFFT’s publication titled Towards Sustainability is now available

The NFFT’s newest publication titled Towards Sustainability – How can Hungary contribute to the achievement of the sustainable development goals? divides the 34 strategic objectives and the assigned 77 tasks of the National Framework Strategy on Sustainable Development into 12 thematic groups and highlights the links between the Hungarian and international sustainable development goals (SDGs).
These groups were designed to arrange the strategic objectives of the National Framework Strategy on Sustainable Development into clear and readily comprehensible themes (e.g. quality education).
To view the detailed analysis and data presentations of the themes in this publication, please download the Framework Strategy and the Monitoring Reports from our website.
A related video is also available on the NFFT’s website.
“The 12 points of national sustainability” is meant to serve as a summary of equivalent worth of the strategic objectives and tasks highlighting the most important data and messages. The presentation of the Framework Strategy in 12 points could be useful for those who would like to obtain a deeper understanding of the various dimensions of sustainability and become active participants of the sustainability transition in their own profession, work (business sector, education or local governments) or in their everyday lives.”

Towards Sustainability – How can Hungary contribute to the achievement of the sustainable development goals?

Human

Nagy kép

Every generation needs human resources: knowledgeable and skilful individuals in appropriate quantity and in good health. Society cannot afford to lose the skills of the disadvantaged groups. Although there is no relevant statistical data, economic value of the human capital likely exceeded that of the material capital around the turn of the millennium, rendering humans the most important resources of the nation.

Natural

Nagy kép

Ecosystem services provided by natural resources are direct and indirect benefits for society, produced by natural and human-regulated ecosystems. Amongst the benefits are provisioning services (food, animal feed, raw material), natural cycle regulating services (climate stabilization, pollination, flood control), supporting services (nutrient cycling, soil formation), and cultural services (recreation, education, art inspiration).

Economic

Nagy kép
The basis of a society’s material growth is economic resources: physical capital, financial capital as storage and transmitter of value, technological knowledge in the form of intellectual property and know-how, and built environment. Entrepreneurs become the cornerstones of sustainable development by discovering the unexploited forms of value creation and managing the utilization of the majority of human, natural and human-created physical resources.

Social

Nagy kép
Moral norms and values, relationships and trust between individuals, as well as organizations, institutions, cultural activities and cultural heritage make up the social resources of a nation. Social capital is the result of historical development, therefore its quality is largely determined by the relation of individuals and organizations to the crucial stages of this development (national history), as well as to the intellectual and material recollections (cultural heritage).
