Transforming Communities

Through our Let’s Colour community programs we are developing & supporting projects which add color to people’s lives and transform communities – all across the world.

Let's Colour Walls of Connection

We have joined forces with MasterPeace to inspire and energize cities around the world, and make them a little more "human". The walls that were once a symbol of separation now become tools for inspiration which connect people and communities.

SOS Children's Villages partnership

We have partnered with SOS Children's Villages to use education and renovation to drive a positive impact on the issue of youth unemployment. The partnership aims to reach the young people of SOS Children's Villages with our professional training through AkzoNobel's painter academies.

Unexpected Courts

Transforming underused urban location into sporting courts, just by adding a splash of paint. The program was launched in the famous Santa Marta favela in Rio de Janeiro and soon was spread all over the city.
