What is the WeAreOpen initiative? Why was it set up? What is its mission?

We know that many people in Hungary share our values, and we believe that it’s important to make this public. The WeAreOpen initiative, along with its webpage nyitottakvagyunk.hu, has been created for companies, organisations and communities that would like to join us in expressing a commitment to openness and inspire others to do the same.

Who was the initiative founded by?

The initiative was founded by espellGoogle and Prezi.

Who are its members?

Several hundred companies, organisations and communities that agree being open is a good thing have joined WeAreOpen.

Who can sign up?

Any company, organisation or community that agrees with our goals and is not affiliated with any political party.

How can organisations sign up?

If they agree with our mission statement, they can simply sign up on nyitottakvagyunk.hu. It’s as easy as that. We’ll then display the participating organisations on our website so everyone can see that they agree being open is a good thing.

What do the participating organisations commit themselves to?

Nothing more and nothing less than what is set out in our mission statement.

What does the initiative involve exactly?

The first step was setting up nyitottakvagyunk.hu. The second step was to encourage companies and communities keen to inspire others with their openness to sign up. That’s ongoing. We participated in Budapest Pride to celebrate the world’s diversity together with other open companies and communities that wanted to join us. Since then we’ve been working together with the participating organisations on a campaign to show just how many of us in Hungary are open. We hope that this will inspire others as well.

How can I learn about the latest activities?

On our website and through our facebook page. We’ll also keep participating organisations updated by email.
