For the third consecutive year, the capital of the Free State of Bavaria has been awarded the quality seal “Soziale Stadt München” (Social City Munich). By the award, the Alliance "München Sozial" recognises the efforts of the city politics and its administration to ensure social justice in Munich.
Mayor Christine Strobl thanked the Alliance for the award and said: “Munich is doing so well because there are so many people with the city at heart. I look forward to further cooperation.”
The alliance "Munich social" consists of more than 60 social organizations and aims to maintain the high standards in the social field in Munich and improve them even more. The Alliance has been founded in 2009 in the wake of the global financial crisis, to prevent the consequences of the crisis hitting the most vulnerable groups of the city.
