Organisation: Szatyor Association
Location: Budapest, Hungary
Szatyor Association was founded in 2011 and now has over 100 members in Budapest. Our aim is to draw attention to sustainable living and conscious consuming (food and household products). We would like to provide space and opportunity to anyone for sharing knowledge, experiences and solutions related to the above-mentioned.
As an alternative eco-conscious association our aim is to be a living example of how to integrate conscious consuming, healthy lifestyle, local and fairtrade products into our everyday lives.
Throughout our programmes we intend to build a community by bringing city-dwellers closer to nature and to natural food producing. We also organize farm visits to our producers to show eco-conscious farming in its authentic environment. On a regular basis we create events of community cooking, cooking classes and attend festivals, all by using seasonal vegetables and fruits provided by our producers.
Our target group includes everybody who wishes to lead his/her urban lifestyle with a consideration to nature. It can start by conscious consuming with an important approach to local products and producers, as well as to environmental friendly technologies throughout the process
Our association is an open community and space offering workshops, classes and presentations to share the knowledge within and to give possible solutions in the topic.
