The Korian Foundation award
To highlight its mission to change the way we view age and seniors, the Korian Foundation has created the Korian Foundation for Ageing Well Award. In partnership with La Fonda, the award aims to promote projects with high-impact potential both geographically and socially.
Each year, the award will go to a local association, charity, or cooperative selected by an independent panel.
The €15,000 prize aims to reward particularly original initiatives that foster Ageing Well at the local level.
The candidates’ projects must fall within one of the Foundation’s four key areas: inclusion through social value; inclusion through autonomy; inclusion through solidarity; or inclusion through prevention. To win, a project must be original, participatory, and factor in respect for individuals and their dignity.
In 2018, intergenerational relations are the first theme to be highlighted. In 2019 the theme will be free choice and competence to act for seniors.
