Summary:
ÜVEGFALU (Glassvillage) is an innovative project with the objective to make Hungarian local governments transparent and gradually extend complete financial transparency to every single municipality in the country. In order to reach such ambitious goals, we have initiated a pilot project in the town called Pazmand - a model that can later be applied to all municipalities in Hungary. For the citizens of Pazmand, we have created a website where one can access virtually all information required by the law and by public interest. Our online surface can be used by any other town or city. In addition to the pilot project, our experts have held trainings, forums and conferences for members of the civil society. On top of that, we have conducted a research on the websites of Hungarian municipalities and found that only 17 percent of the legally binding public information is shared in their websites. Lastly, we have founded the so-called One Hundred Percent Club of Municipalities that invites local governments to upload 100 per cent of mandatory public informations.
