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”.

Human

Nagy kép

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.

Natural

Nagy kép

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).

Economic

Nagy kép
The basis of a society’s material growth is economic resources: physical capital, financial capital as storage and transmitter of value, technological knowledge in the form of intellectual property and know-how, and built environment. Entrepreneurs become the cornerstones of sustainable development by discovering the unexploited forms of value creation and managing the utilization of the majority of human, natural and human-created physical resources.

Social

Nagy kép
Moral norms and values, relationships and trust between individuals, as well as organizations, institutions, cultural activities and cultural heritage make up the social resources of a nation. Social capital is the result of historical development, therefore its quality is largely determined by the relation of individuals and organizations to the crucial stages of this development (national history), as well as to the intellectual and material recollections (cultural heritage).
