The Zöldgömb Festival will take place for the third time on Sunday, October 27 2019. The Zöldgömb Festival is a free family-centred event where recognised specialists offer easy-to-use, practical information and tips on how to live in an environmentally friendly and conscious way in order to help protect our Planet.
The Festival aims to
- draw the attention of the people to easy-to-use solutions through positive messages;
- provide information on and promote initiatives of community effort;
- share simple, practical solutions and easy recipes to adopt an environmentally friendly and conscious lifestyle;
- promote already existing models and good practices.
In addition to the informative presentations, the Festival offers useful and entertaining programmes for people of all ages.
The event is hosted by Földgömb magazine under the patronage of Dr. János Áder, President of the Republic of Hungary.
The National Council for Sustainable Development will be a professional sponsor of this year’s Green Globe Festival. The NFFT’s secretary, dr. Gábor Bartus will deliver a speech titled “Sustainability and/or prosperity”.
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.
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).
