Idea Contest for Supporting the well-being of Turku Residents
This year, the City of Turku will use up to half a million euros of will fund yields for promoting the wellbeing of city residents during and after the state of emergency. The city’s own operators as well as registered non-profit associations, organisations and foundations could apply until the 6 of May, and propose their ideas concerning the following areas:
- prevention of loneliness
- mental well-being
- improving functional capacity
- digital support
Up to 60,000 euros are allocated for each area during the application round of spring. The focus of ideas should primarily be on services intended for the elderly that promote wellbeing and health and support the city’s strategy.
In May, Turku City Board will decide on the distribution of funds on the basis of the wellbeing steering group’s proposal. The second round of applications will be organised in autumn 2020.
