The idea of a wedding is so majestic that a significant part of women are motivated to plan their big day from their early childhood. Grooms tend to appear as accessories to be easily replaced if broken or faulty. Joking aside, I'm a man. And I'm convinced that if two girls get together to plan their "dream wedding", nothing good is about to happen to mankind.
Kati and Dóri are ordinary girls, who are trying to make all little girls' dream day as beautiful, memorable and eco-friendly. Some girls dream about having the most enormous wedding, for others just picking the best location takes months, and some others enter the church with metal music in the background.
Where I come from, this word means "hey you all"! I'm Sanyi, 25, and I've lived in Slovakia ever since. I've just moved to Budapest to be a volunteer of Messzelátó Egyesület in 2014, as after having graduated, I felt I needed to gain a few more experiences before entering the great real world.
Messzelátó can count on me when it comes to creative text formats or anything that requires manual skills. Having been the editor-in-chief of the only Hungarian youth magazine in Slovakia, I hope I'll be able to contribute to everything that will require writing and editing skills.
If you'd like know more about me, take a look at my Prezi or follow the Messzelátó volunteers' blog.
Our two new volunteer, Maria and Sanyi represented us there. The preparation work for this event begun two days earlier, as Maria had the idea to exemplify Messzelato with a recycled Twister designed with vegetables. Apart from giving an overview about what we stand for and what worshops we organise, we showed our homemade soaps and seedy, recycled postcards to the participants and the bravest ones even tried our ECO-Twister! Almost all of who showed interest for our work signed up for our newsletter, so hopefully we will see them again at some of our workshops in the near future.
Have you heard about Grundkert is going to move? The social communal garden, where Messzelátó were working a lot as well. To having the new territory and run it properly costs a lot of money.
The Werk Akadémia was so cool and supported us with their annual amount of incomes from recycled based clothe-creations.
If you feel so make a bid to your favorite one (those are amazing!!). We kindly ask you help us to spread the news away of it on the internet. Share it!:) We have a shareable picture and a nice event on facebook as well.
Thank you very much for supporting us!

To honor the Restaurant Day Occasion, Messzelato accociation would open their restaurant for one day where they would make delicious food from thrown away and not so useful food material. There is no need to be alarmed as to whether decayed or food gone bad gets onto the table as we are going to use such kind of raw material that has not got into the shleves owing to silly reasons or those materials that has become an extra burden with the producer and owing to no flexible rules could not be sold the next day.
Please come and experience our practical experiment!
Our planned menu whihc could change depending on the raw materials found:
- Recycled Smoothy: The shake made from remains from the market. Ingredients that we believe we would have : baked pumpkin, Apple, spinach and other green leaves, carrots,and other vegetables.
It is a proven fact that if a society considers itself as a poor one ( or the poorest ), then they tend to concentrate less on the surrounding Environment. We would like to change this situation by teaching very cost effective ECO solutions to those families where every Forint counts. The knowedge gathered from us would help them to keep their homes clean without involving dangerous chemicals.
Please help to spread this environmental conscious knowledge to even the most hidden corners of this Country!

As soon as our new EVS volunteers arrive , We would like to plan our next Messzelato picnic. Till then we did some Geo chests Planting. we concealed two Geo chests during the first round at the still virign locations near Bánki lake.
This Geo binning is one classic international game which is played now all over the world. Small Treasure chests are concealed for the volunteers for whihc the GPS coordinates are provided in the user friendly webpages even in Hungarian. The tour can start with GPS or with smapr tphone to look for the treasure chest! Have you tried this before? we have had wonderful experience many a times before doing many beautiful tourist trails!
Our personal favorite would be near Kis nógrád- County area, which became famous for its Banki lake festival. But there is life beyond the lake too!Summer evening concerts on the lake stage, and we get signs of tourists very rarely though this place is full of beautiful sights and lot of trails could be found here. Our voulnteer, Schnierer Tamás has made one classic websitethat is filled with details reagrding tarils and the sight seeing spots.Should you be planning to go there , please visit the webpage to get some useful pointers and leave some kind messages in our ever mushrooming chests!
More exciting thing is the raw material used for the calling card which we acquired from Perc Print Digital Printers workshop.
Should you be looking for making your name cards , we would definitely recomend them and their advsies too:
"The calling card has been made from 100% recycled raw material.we really like this paper because we could beautifully see the recycled pulp in it. Chemical treated white raw material also available for making name cards , but they are not very popular. we recommend these type of raw material for each and every one who wants to communicate their love for their planet thorugh their name cards.

We could call ourselves very lucky thanks to International Coaching association members and and MagNet Bank/a> that we had a possibilty to meet the domestic coaches in an open session. It proved to be very useful and helpful for us to take part in this coaching with a value of of about 300,000 HUF. In a blind date kind of atmosphere , kati and Judit could talk to their mentors ina very open and stress free environment. The event ended in a successful note with mutual working relationship worked out with two mentors.
