According to researches, youngsters believe they resist more to corruption than the majority of society. 73% of them feel that they should be part of the fight against corruption, but assume that their efforts would be disregarded. A quarter of youngsters does not know where to turn when encountering corruption. Still, no targeted educational program is available in Hungary, while at the same time corruption shows worsening tendencies. The goal is to strengthen a societal basis that rejects corruption, through an educational and mobilization program based on civil cooperation between TI and joining youth organizations. TI Academy teaches youngsters about corruption and the ways to act and mobilize against it. Targeted are youth organizations formed by people aged 16-29, of different profiles, working in various parts of the country: through them, the project targets the young generation fostering their commitment to the values of transparency and participatory democracy.
