„A youth club would be an important part of the village” – the story of Zsombor


Zsombor Sipos is one of the people involved in the local community orginizing work of our project "Reclaim Our Civil Space!" The project runs in 8 countries in Central and Eastern Europe, and while the local coordinators always respond to local needs, these have one thing in common: they support the creation of a civic space, where people take control of their own life and live up to their potential. Zsombor is 15 years old and lives in a village called Kölked in Hungary, where a strong local community has been formed with the help of Ökotárs Foundation's community organizers. Zsombor has plans to make the village a better place for the young people who live there.
