Good educational, cultural and life prospects of the children and young people assume a high priority in Münster as the undertaking of sustainability is always based on an awareness of one’s responsibility for future generations. The demographic transition, which is characterised by a reduction in the population and aging also demands that children, young people and families form the focal point of urban development plans. Thus full-time supervision at primary schools is presently being extended. The quality management of day nurseries is also attracting attention beyond Münster’s boundaries. The city’s outstanding performances were recently rewarded when Münster was awarded the title of the most children-friendly city in Germany.
