Communites for Elizabeth Town
2010

Böske

The informal civic organization called Böske (abbreviation for Elizabeth Town, the 7th district of Budapest) was created with the aim to make this part of the city more livable, likable and human through the cooperation of its citizens. Activists and civil society actors met regularly and organized cultural and professional programs, public discussions and workshops. Our goal is to make this historically dominant part of the city more attractive, revitalize local traditions and to facilitate communication between people.
