On 7 June 2021, a press conference was held to present the fifth edition of the ‘Premio Costruiamo il Futuro Milano Citta Metropolitana’ (Building the Future Milan Metropolitan City Award), an initiative created to provide concrete support for sports associations’ efforts and projects in Milan and its province.
Safety21 is supporting the event for the second year, as it has always believed in and supported projects that generate value for the community, for sport and for the region.
Since the initiative was launched in 2003, over 600 clubs have been supported, €950,000 has been donated to projects and over 2,500 associations have been involved.
In 2020, the Foundation received 546 requests for grants. This number has almost doubled compared to previous years, showing that many organisations are facing great difficulties, also due to the Covid-19 emergency.
This is why the Foundation, with the support of private companies like Safety21, has set itself the challenging goal of supporting the activities of 50 sports associations – double the number of associations compared to the previous year – thus supporting the most significant education and training projects for young people and ensuring they have healthy meeting places that help prevent hardship and alienation.
