European Village Renewal Award 2014 goes to Hungary

PA Tihany
The competition for the European Village Renewal Award 2014 is over: A high-rank international interdisciplinary jury elected the winner after intensive assesement at the last evaluation meeting in Munich: Tihany, district Veszprém, Hungary. "Tihany impressed with an exemplary development process which was initiated by the village officials and was carried by the citizens and supported by experts. It was built on potentials and chances and is evidence of a broad awareness of problems. Numerous already realised projects made the motto of the competition "lead a better life" a reality in Tihany. The fact that a participant of a country from behind the former Iron Curtain is awarded with the European Rural Village Award shows on the one hand the great development progress which was achieved over the last quarter of this century and on the other hand it is evidence for the high sensibility and professional expertise of the jury not only to measure and evaluate reached goals but also the covered distance" , Erwin Pröll, Chairman of the European Association for Rural Development and Village Renewal, said enthusiastically in a first reaction.
