The Future of Europe Association was established on 29th September 1990 with the objective to organize a children’s meeting in Kecskemét in order to get children from Kecskemét acquainted with children from Europe. The guiding principle was simple: children would get invited from various countries of the continent and be hosted by families in Kecskemét. In the following year, foreign groups would invite their hosts for an exchange visit.
One of our main missions is to promote and spread Hungarian culture and provide publicity to Kecskemét by means of international children and youth exchanges.
Our programmes serve as the means to deepen knowledge about Hungarians living beyond the current borders of our country and foster cultural exchange relations.
Our Association is also actively involved in local, regional and national civilian circles. We ran the Volunteer Centre of Bács-Kiskun County for years, and besides engaging our volunteers we provide the opportunity for numerous students to carry out their school community service at our programmes and events.
Through our publications and events we intend to support the ideals and accomplish the aims set out upon the establishment of the Association, that is, to foster the future citizens of Europe, today’s children to become a tolerant generation free from all prejudices.
