Gyüttment Festival | Oszkó | Hungary

Local procurement

The raw materials for catering are obtained primarily (but not exclusively) from local producers, within a 50-kilometer radius, strictly without packaging. In this way, we reduce transport distances and the amount of packaging at the same time. In order for this to be realized, our catering team did serious research in the area, mapping out the possibilities and producers. Of course, certain raw materials and spices cannot be purchased without packaging or locally, but this is a minimal part of our total kitchen needs. It is also important to obtain the raw materials necessary for the construction of the infrastructure from the nearest possible sites – as much as possible, dismantled, recycled, and sometimes from garbage collection.

Acton Academy | Békéscsaba | Hungary

Meadow of possibilities

Acton Academy is a rethinking of school. Acton asks the fundamental question that was missing in our own educational experiences. What is education really for? Acton believes that education is not just about college, getting a job, or even starting a career. It’s about discovering a calling. It’s about answering the most fundamental questions: “Who am I? Where am I going? How do my passions and talents connect with the world around me? How can I serve a great need and even change the world?” Acton challenges students to become the agents and primary drivers of their learning, the entrepreneurs of their own education and life calling.

Ways of transitioning

DeGrowth is no longer a provocative movement

With DeGrowth we are questioning ourselves about the physical and cultural limits to growth, and how to get rid of all these addictions to “always more”. And will present what we are suggesting as a solution on different living to implement transition, which are democratic to one new models of society, based on environmental and social justice commonality and autonomy. Rather, it encourages dialogue among those who believe that our way of thinking can be changed. Meet us at the Open Source Circular Economy Day in Budapest. An invitation from Vincent Liegey.


Realistic Alternatives

Research beyond the paradigm

The guest of Envienta OSCE Days, Dr. Alexandra Köves, assistant professor at Corvinus University, draws attention to backcasting research in her presentation, from which a very utopian vision of the future unfolds. However, given the limits to growth and the megatrends, these are all realistic alternatives. The processes are moving in the direction of glocalization, the redefinition of work, the social involvement of economic actors, and a new type of political system.


Organizational Forms

The Community Enterprise

The exponential technologies defining the trends of the 21st century and the sharing-based economy based on it have brought new forms of cooperation, as a result of which the old organizational forms – designed for efficiency and repetition – are gradually becoming obsolete. In addition to the integral approach, the efficiency of future businesses will be determined by community quality. Gusztáv Pabló Vágvölgyi, head of the Inspi-Ráció Association, tells about the difficulties that organizations still have to face, and what solutions already exist for them.


Conversations on Human Welfare

Is Universal Basic Income inevitable?

In the crossfire of public and political debates around the world, the question and necessity of introducing an unconditional basic income. In Finland, Canada and the Netherlands, among others, going beyond the ideological debates, pilot projects are already underway for the purpose of assessing the impact of basic income. Interview with György Pálffy.


Ways of transition

Connecting the dots

Envienta OSCE Days welcomes Vincent Liegey, the engineer and spokesperson for the Degrowth Movement. In this event Vincent talks about the limits to growth, the increasing consumption of the finite resources and the real cost of the renewable energy. Considering the limits, his proposal is about low-tech solutions, like Cargonomia, a local community based food distribution service.


The Access Economy

Cultural dimension shift

Today’s technological development seems to leave people standing still, so human development and community development become vital, according to Sándor Koszecz, president of the Életfa Cultural Foundation and head of organizational development at Envienta.


Open Source Robotics

Grassroots software & hardware engineering

Áron Tanos and Emil Novák visited OSCE Days as exhibitors on behalf of the Hungarian Association of Robot Builders, which also deals with future-oriented technologies and education. The association, which is at the forefront of community cooperation and collaborative development activities, also supports open source software and hardware developments.


Social Innovations

About proactive engagement

The OSCE Days in Budapest were hosted by Gábor Tóth, who closed the event with a thought-provoking, sometimes critical, but still entertaining presentation. This shows, among other things, how the search for viable alternatives led to the founding of the Community of Conscious Youth and then to the Envienta project.


Circular Economy

We aim at envisioning & encouraging technological alternatives

In the ongoing industrial revolution, exponentially developing technologies, open-source cooperation, the rational distribution and use of resources, and global environmental sustainability all play a prominent role. In the opening presentation of OSCE Days, Gábor Kiss presents the Envienta project, which creates the foundations of community-based, open-source research and development in cooperation with the best in various fields. Through the process, we can reshape and at the same time make our living spaces ecologically sustainable.


Ways of transition

Questioning the physical and cultural limits to growth

DeGrowth is inviting us to connect the dots, is inviting us to always think further and it’s a great time to go deeper into thinking about the culturally needs to growth and whereas the blockades and how to go ahead step by step without falling in the wrong solution and with also the idea to how to secure the contradiction what we face in every step of the transformation of the society.


Realistic Alternatives

The Backcasting Method

In life of our advisor Alexandra Köves, Dr. a decade long experience on policy development have raised topics which questioning the fundamentals of the development of the economy and society. Since then, she has participated in future researches on how to create systems with more sustainable environments and more equitable society. According to her belief, how we think about the future, what we consider possible or impossible determines what we want or want to do in the present or not.


Ways of Decentralization

Commons-based peer production

Will there be an independent self-regulation above states in organized production-based communities? Some issues can not be solved with autonomous self-interest, but with deep collaboration in networked commons, playing an ever-greater role, complemented by government and market forces. We asked ourselves: what if we’re calling people from different fields of life working together to open source almost everything in a household? With holistic approach, it’s obvious to have few key areas merged into the system. Gabor Kiss, Co-founder of Envienta gives few examples.


Ways of Collaboration

Community & Innovation

Every settlement has a cultural institution that can be transformed into an innovation development center and a community space. In the spirit of the cultural dimension shift, we should rediscover these and fill them with content. This is also one of the declared goals of the Envienta project.


Conversations on Human Welfare

The case for Universal Basic Income

György Pálffy, representing the position of the UBI Association and Envienta, considers the complete reform of the social system inevitable in Hungary as well. He bases his argument on the megatrends that also define the labor market, and basic income can become the main tool for economic revitalization and consumption promotion.
