GREEN CONTEXT/ BACKGROUND
Szécsény is a small town in the Northern part of Hungary.
The town is situated in Nógrád county which is one of the poorest region of the country. Here the unemployment is high, and the youth has very limited opportunities to stay and work here. Hence, young people from the region tend to move abroad or to bigger cities in Hungary to start a new life. Szécsény is a historical town. In the center, you can find historical sites such as a castle, a tower and a bastion. In the town, you can find necessary institutions such as banks, schools, health center and pharmacy. As well as there are restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, a library, a community center. The youngsters have no active social life in the town, they have very limited opportunities to spend their time with their friends or to go out.Since in the nearby villages there are no schools or only up until 4th grade, most of the children come to Szécsény on a daily basis to school. In the town there are three schools which provide classes from 1st grade until graduation, and beyond. Several artistic group works in the town. There are theater groups, a hip hop group and folklore groups as well.
