„We would like to live in a world where every young person can find their place and community”

says the mission statement of the Foundation For Democratic Youth (FDY).

To that end, they work to help young people think responsibly about the future, gain experience and knowledge about the world around them, learn to say their piece in situations that involve them, and make them a part of the solution to the problems in their communities.

The FDY team assists the Budapest Festival Orchestra in encouraging the Dancing on the Square project’s children to get to know each other as well as they can, in addition to the musical and dancing experience, to help them learn about each other and the importance of co-operation, trust, respect and a positive attitude.

The Festival Orchestra, working closely with the FDY, is organising a summer camp and regional events for these meetings.
