Association for Everyday Culture
The organisation founded in 1998, initially dealt with the implementation of the “For Fair Business” campaign (“Tisztességes vállalkozásokért”). The aim of the Action was to establish and disseminate the methods of successful workculture, business and financial culture. This initiative was later supplemented by an element developing public education and everyday culture.
Until 2012, the Association organized the “Work Culture and Vocational Training Program” twenty-one times. Over the years the event has grown into a nationally recognised meeting. The organisation has got through a transformation in 2011, in which adult education has become the major activity of the association.
In 2012, the association participated in the Nokia Bridge Family Management Program organised by the Nokia Komárom Ltd., as an educational institution for adults. The purpose of the modular training program was to prepare participants wishing to engagein agricultural activity, as well as to prepare “small farmers" to continue their business activities individually or in partnership.
