After all, with economic success comes greater responsibility towards society. As a patron of art and culture, Klemens Hallmann enables artistic and sporting excellence.”
Art and culture are a mirror of the world and are important to people and society. Art connects and can drive a dialogue across all boundaries. So I see it as my responsibility to promote these areas where possible and also support them in a consultative or creative way. Youth promotion, climate protection, social issues and adherence to a culture of responsibility in Europe are just like art, issues that are closely intertwined and form an essential part of my life. I find that in order to move forward as a society, it is not only important to think about ourselves constantly. It is also our duty to return the favor wherever possible.”Hallmann was moved.
Art and culture connect and create identification

The UNODC Youth Initiative, supported by the United Nations, facilitates regular funding and active support from Holman with the goal of giving young people a powerful voice.

Working with schoolchildren and young people is very close to his heart, because currently around 1,000 young people are learning the game as well as mutual respect, fair play and team spirit.
The interaction between art, culture and sport builds bridges within our society beyond the borders of Europe. So it is now necessary to open new horizons for young people through supportHallman is convinced.
