Award for "Active Ageing – City Map for Senior Citizens" (Munich, Germany)

Older people were consulted when making the map

The city map for senior citizens developed by the Munich Department for Health and Environment has now been awarded with the 2011 Bavarian Award for Health and Prevention (Bayerischer Gesundheitsförderungs- und Präventionspreis 2011), as it provides guidance for short distance mobility for older people.

Green City also took part in creating the map. Before being finalized, Green City introduced the map to older people during afternoon sessions in the Senior Citizen Centres of Untergiesing, Obergiesing and Harlaching within the framework of the AENEAS Project. 35 volunteers could then test the map for one week and were invited to make suggestions the improve the map – like enlarging the symbols, changing colours and marking the access to cemeteries.
