Újszilvás, Hungary

In a relatively short space of time, Újszilvás was able to realize its potential and resources, make use of renewable energies, and create a social network, that have improved the quality of living within the community and have led to a degree of prosperity. The professional entrepreneurial culture of local family businesses enabled the inhabitants to assert themselves, some even across the border of Hungary. The community‘s rapid success and economic upturn are largely due to an excellent cooperation between these operations and the future-oriented municipal administration. Therefore, Újszilvás has been honoured with a European Village Renewal Award for sustainable, holistic and motto-adequate village development of excellent quality.
