The German Senior Citizens’ Awards

Prize Winner: Rödental – A Place
to Grow Old!

Jury’s Reasoning:

With their overall concept geared toward the needs of senior citizens and an expansive culture of commitment, the City of Rödental is facing the challenges posed by demographic change in an exemplary and trend-setting manner. In the City of Rödental, the idea of a “Caring Community” where people assume responsibility for others is put into practice and lived out each and every day. At the same time, their efforts are geared toward keeping senior citizens (including near-centenarians) active and allowing them to live independently.
