8.10 Current debates and reforms

According to the information provided by the Ministry of Human Capacities in 2021, the three most important issues in the field of youth community culture are:

  • national identity, patriotism,
  • health awareness and
  • climate awareness.

The main objectives include strengthening patriotism and national identity through culture, with a special focus on the role of popular music.

In 2021 an important step was made in the field of culture with the 'establishment of the Foundation for Hungarian Culture (Magyar Kultúráért Alapítvány) in April 2021 which is a ''Public Interest Foundation Performing Public Functions'', as a new type of institution introduced by the Parliament on the same day. Sizeable assets and competencies as well as huge current and prospected financial resources and properties have been donated to the new Foundation'. (Compendium, 2021) The Foundation's goal is to support and finance important strategic cultural events.
