The jury said, that they had received a record number of applications despite the drought-stricken summer highlighting the importance of the continuous improvement of the green environment for local communities. More and more municipalities are using perennials instead of annual flowers or are paying attention to afforestation, but there are also good examples of rainwater harvesting.
