In Moscow, the ceremony of awarding projects winning the MUF Community Awards 2020 was held, which for the first time in its history was organized in an online format and became one of the parts of the Moscow Urban Forum, which became possible in 2020. This was announced by the head of the Department of Urban Planning Policy of the city of Moscow Sergey Levkin.
“In the conditions of the transfer of the Moscow Urban Forum to 2021, the award ceremony was held for the first time in an online format. At the same time, the winners of the award will later be awarded with traditional MUF Community Awards figurines”, – said Sergey Levkin.
This year, 364 projects claimed to win in 13 nominations. The final list, formed by an expert jury and put to the vote on the official website of the Mayor of Moscow mos.ru included 44 projects. Electronic voting took place from June 26 to July 3. About 70 thousand citizens took part in it.
“Let me remind you that the MUF Community Awards are awarded annually for the brightest city projects and initiatives authored by citizens”, – said Sergey Levkin.
He added that this year among the winners of the award, not only memorable, but also very necessary projects for people. So, for example, in the nomination “Charitable and social projects” won the first free social hotel in Russia for cancer children “Good House.”
“For us, the victory of the Green River Park in the nomination” City Design “was a special joy. The area of the park is 10 hectares. Visitors are attracted to unique architecture and landscape, sports and entertainment areas. This new park appeared on the site of the reorganized Sickle and Hammer industrial zone. He became a vivid illustration of how it is possible to improve the quality of life of Muscovites and a model for solving the problem of creating a comfortable urban environment, as Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin spoke about in his speeches at the MUF2019”, – said Sergey Levkin.
