Arkema, partner of Sport dans la Ville
Sport is a major topic at Arkema: already involved in sailing and women’s football, the Group wanted to go further to promote the integration of young people.
Arkema has become a partner of Sport dans la Ville, an association which aims to promote the social and professional integration of young people from disadvantaged districts through the introduction of sporting and cultural activities.
6,500 young people are concerned by this action. A program called “L dans la Ville” is dedicated to 1,000 girls and offers them sporting activities, cultural visits, outings on the theme of “discovery”, visits to businesses, and training workshops to give them the same opportunities of success as boys, and encourage their development as well as social and professional integration.
The "L dans la Ville" program
Sport dans la Ville will also be the organizer of Street Football World Festival 19, a major international charity tournament that will be held to coincide with the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 in Lyon in early July.
As national supporter of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019, Arkema decided to support the general interest missions of the Sport dans la Ville association, in particular by sponsoring this international charity championship event that will benefit 400 participants including 300 young people from around the world.
