Third meeting of the Executive Network for Family Values Budapest

The Kopp Mária Institute for Demography and Families (KINCS) launched the Executive Network for Family Values in 2019 to provide possibility for a regular meeting and sincere exchange of experiences for family-friendly decision-makers and various stakeholders, from Europe and the wider international environment. The third session of the Network was attended by 50 experts from 17 countries.

The initiative, which aims to give positive content to networking aims to provide a platform for sincere exchange of experiences for pro-family decision makers and stakeholders from Europe and the wider international environment and to create an up-to-date, pro-family network with the aim of shaping European and international policies and trends. In addition to thematic exchanges, club-type meetings provide an opportunity for informal networking.

It is a clear recognition of Hungarian family policies that 50 experts from 17 countries gathered in Budapest upon the invitation of KINCS. 4 international and 11 national family organizations, 4 governments and 11 universities and research centres were represented, while 3 MEPs and 5 journalists were also present at the meeting.  

Gergely Ekler, Deputy Minister for Families gave an opening keynote speech at the event. In addition to presenting the demographic situation in Europe and Hungary, he gave participants an overview of Hungarian family policy measures introduced in the previous decade, and the achievements thereof.

Participants discussed the advocacy opportunities of international and national family organizations representing their membership, namely real people and real families, at both national and EU level; and the importance of family-friendly Media contents. The meeting also provided a comprehensive overview of Brazil's demographic situation and family policy measures.

Hungarian family policy is gaining more and more interest on international level, with many paying close attention to the significant achievements of the previous decade. The Executive Network for Family Values of KINCS clearly shows as well that Hungary has become the centre of family friendly stakeholders.
