Dávid Szabó

In the summer of his college graduation, Dávid decided he would like to do something to advance our society. He was disturbed by people’s indifference and isolation, as well as the incredible wastefulness stemming from lack of trust and information. He envisioned a kind of society where, in addition to trust, sharing and mutual assistance, a friendly and open-minded attitude prevails and guides our lives.

It was this dream that triggered Dávid and his team to launch a local community-building project – a social networking site called “Miutcánk.hu” (“Our Street”) – which has more than 50,000 registered members by now. Today, the number of practical tools available to help people build more direct and trustful relationships is still few. Dávid and his team are hoping that their new initiative will encourage cooperation as opposed to alienation and thus can significantly improve millions of lives. They also believe that their project can contribute to initiating positive social change on a global scale.

No matter whether she is supporting the visioning and strategy development process of a sheltered workshop in Paysandú, Uruguay, working on the launch of a social enterprise in Dublin, facilitating group processes and women circles or leading the co-creation and educational development activities of the Budapest Food City Lab initiative of the Environmental Social Science Research Group, a holistic approach and empathy are essential components of her various efforts that aim to create a positive impact for society.
