BNL BNP Paribas Group and BNP Paribas Real Estate, a Group company specialized in the real estate sector, are “Education Partner” of Triennale, the prestigious cultural institution offering training activities for young people. These project will take place in 2016 and, more specifically, within the framework of the “XXI Triennale International Exhibition of Milan” entitled “21st Century. Design After Design” (2nd April-19th September).
In particular, BNL and BNP Paribas Real Estate support “La Balena”, a space dedicated to 3-10 year old kids in the teaching section called TDMEducation, inside the Palace of Art, with workshops, exhibitions, collections, videos, meetings and entertainment to accompany children and their parents as they visit the Triennale.
BNL and BNP Paribas Real Estate take part in the XXI Triennale International Exhibition of Milan supporting also the guided tours to the exhibitions reserved to younger visitors and schools, which will take place not only at the Triennale but also in other locations within the city of Milan.
By supporting this initiative, BNL and BNP Paribas Real Estate want to invest in the future, creativity and knowledge of the new generations, as it is a key factor to enrich individual well-being and that of our society, as kids will be the citizens of the future.
To stress its commitment, BNL has also participated for the third consecutive year, in the “Festival of Creative Culture“, promoted and coordinated by ABI all over Italy from 2nd to 8th May 2016. Since 2008 BNL has been organizing the “EduCare” initiative across Italy, offering over 5,000 free lessons on economics and in 2014, the project has been extended to younger kids, by promoting “EduCare Scuola”, an information program on basic concepts in the field of economics, savings and investment, open to all elementary school-children nationwide.
Raising and educating the new generations is a hallmark for BNP Paribas Real Estate, too. Last year the Company established a prize in cooperation with the Free University of Languages and Communication IULM, to support the 10 most deserving graduates in each academic year. BNPPRE also supported the implementation of the project ROME – 2025 at the MAXXI Museum in Rome, an international workshop that involved 470 students and 100 teachers from 25 universities around the world, engaged in a rethinking of the future urban assets of the city for the next decade.
