What is 'Smart City Budapest' Initiative?

Smart City Budapest (SCB) Initiative collects mostly grassroots projects and organisations from Budapest which are connected to the smart city concept. SCB Initiative aims to introduce best practices from businesses, institutions, non-profit organisations and the people of Budapest. With knowledge transfer our goal is to encourage citizens to take actions for a better city. A city is smart when investments in capital and communication infrastructure fuel sustainable economic growth and a high quality of life, in combination with an efficient use of natural resources. But a smart city doesn't exist without smart citizens.

Rákóczi Reggeli

It’s been two years since we started to be actively present in and around Rákóczi Market Hall.

The former BRFK photo gallery was reborn as a local experimental club called Rákócity. The first program included jungle vibes, calmness and lots of green.  

Last year, the first Mindspace voluntary meeting was held, which proved to be popular. That's why it took place again, this year on February 4th, in the big hall of Lumen Cafe. The Mindspace team has been surprised, as more than 60 people have appeared and many have joined as a volunteer.
