Novák thanked Meloni for accepting the invitation to one of the largest conferences in Hungary, to be held between September 14 and 16 in Budapest.
The Budapest Demographic Summit is the forum where politicians, church leaders, experts, representatives of the media, corporate sector and science meet every two years since 2015 to discuss the main issues affecting families.
Today, some claim that environmental challenges are caused by starting families and having children.
They perceive having children is damaging. Some think sustainability and family are incompatible.
Therefore, this year’s summit is focusing on demography and sustainability.
Is it worth discussing sustainability if not enough children are being born?
What does science say and what is being broadcasted in the media?
What role ideology plays in the assessment of families and environmental protection?
Are the challenges African nations face caused by the high birth rate or the lack of infrastructure?
What can Europe do in times of the demographic crisis?
These and many similar issues will be raised in this year’s summit.
