Helen Ltd will support events for a total of 30,000 euros. The support goes to events that will create positive energy in one way or another. The application period for the ‘world’s best city energy’ grants starts on 2 May 2016.
City events are not only given financial support, but also visibility and audibility in the communication channels of Helen and its partner Bassoradio. The selections emphasise the urban cultural value, diversity and responsibility of the projects, as well as the popularity of the applications.
Helen supports vibrant and responsible urban culture
Helen gave grants to events for the first time last summer, and almost 350 events sent out their applications. Ten of them were awarded with a grant of 3,000 euros. This year, grants are awarded to as many as twenty events, and it is possible to apply for a grant worth either 1,000 or 3,000 euros.
Helen has long traditions in supporting various city events, arts and sports.
– We want to make supporting the city culture even more visible and, on the other hand, more transparent. By supporting urban events in this way, we are making a concrete effort in ensuring that world’s best city energy will be created in Finland this summer, says Helen’s Communications Manager Sanna Jääskeläinen.
The world’s best city energy grants will be awarded on a weekly basis, starting from week 20 until the end of July. Applications can be completed and voted for at the address helen.fi/kaupunkienergiaa (in Finnish).
