The fourth European Sustainability Week has been successfully completed. As previously, Hungary participated in the event this year again, which offered 36 different programmes for the attendants to choose from. Each region within Hungary organized their own programme focusing on various aspects of sustainability. Community events continue to be the most popular components but this year’s programme included several exhibitions, sports events and eco-art workshops as well.

The speakers at the meeting included the representatives of the Hungarian Audit Office and the Hungarian Central Bank in addition to Csaba Kőrösi, the director of environmental sustainability at the President’s Office and Gábor Bartus, NCSD’s secretary as guest presenters.
