Helen donates 30,000 euros to summer events and projects

During the summer, Helen Ltd will donate EUR 3,000 to ten events or projects that promote positive energy in one way or another.

The summer campaign will be organised in co-operation with Helen and Bassoradio. An expert panel with members from Helen and Bassoradio will decide on awarding the grants. When making its choices, the panel looks at, e.g. the number of ‘likes’ received by the applications and their popularity in social media. The diversity and responsibility of projects and their urban cultural value in particular are rated highly by the panel.

The world’s best city energy grants will be awarded on a weekly basis, starting from week 21 until 31 July 2015. Events and projects can be voted online at, and the most interesting candidates will have an opportunity to tell about their project in the Keskipäivä programme on Bassoradio. Basso will also broadcast selected events live.

Helen aims to support lively and responsible urban culture.
- Helen has long traditions in supporting various city events, arts and sports. We want to make this activity even more visible and transparent. We want to be involved in creating the world’s best city energy, which is produced in a variety of events throughout the Finnish summer, says Helen’s Communications Manager Sanna Jääskeläinen.

The application can be submitted online at
