In 2016 the MVM Group, which is owned exclusively by the Hungarian state, supported CÖF Civil Cooperation Forum, a government-organised non-governmental organisation, with 508 million HUF. The sum EKINT is applying for is only 1% of the support given to CÖF. In its program EKINT would like to promote the democracy education of university students.
EKINT’s University Democracy project wishes to counteract the
negative effects of this education policy by providing a platform and
encouragement for university students to take part in public affairs and
strengthen their commitment to democratic processes. The project is a
follow-up on our earlier University Citizens project.
