|BOCS.HU - Introduction|
Welcome to the
BOCS Foundation web site
covering sustainable development since 1995.
BOCS (pronunciation: boch):
Brain Organisation for Civilisation of Sustainability
The BOCS Foundation (Bokor Ecology Group) was created in 1975 by the young people at the Basilica of Szekesfehervar with the leadership of Gyula Simonyi. It is formally registered in 1994. It has been working on the Hungarian speaking areas (Hungary, and among Hungarian minorities in Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Slovakia), in India (help schooling of poor village girls in Gujarat since 1977) and Africa. Its work is aimed at global education (first of all peace and environmental education, development and human rights education), international development cooperation, rights of future generations and conscientious objectors (some of us were in prison in the communist period of Hungary), sexual and reproductive health and rights, freedom of religions.
Global education in formal, informal and non-formal frames means lectures in schools, conferences and churches, programs in camps and festivals, trainings, educational materials, computer animations, email newsletters, media etc. The http://bocs.hu website is working since 1995.
BOCS is member of International Fellowship of Reconciliation, and Church & Peace networks since 1995. Also BOCS is member of ECEN (European Christian Environmentalists Network) and EuroNGOs. BOCS is the delegate of the Hungarian Green Movement in the International Development Cooperation Consultative Board of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 2003. Gyula Simonyi is a Balaton Group member since 1995.
