Behind the name
A name change like no else
Wanting to make a difference
The new name is not only a tribute to one of the greatest Swedish artists of our time, but the arena is now also a symbol and hub for initiatives focused on young people’s mental health and future.
In connection with the launch of Avicii Arena – Stockholm Live, Tim Bergling Foundation, Trygg-Hansa and Bauhaus started a joint initiative that works to prevent mental illness among young people throughout the country. The collaboration will provide young people with tools and knowledge to feel better, whilst adults will become more aware of the widespread problems with mental illness in the young people. Avicii Arena will be the beacon of hope and meeting place for the initiative.
“Trygg-Hansa sees mental illness among young people as one of our biggest societal challenges. We face the effects of mental illness in customer meetings every day and in addition to being there when something happens, we want to contribute to preventative measures. For us, it is about increasing knowledge and understanding of young people’s mental health, and we also want to contribute with coping mechanism that can help young people feel better.”

“BAUHAUS has an important role in the work against mental illness, both as a workplace with many young people as well as a great commitment within the sports movement. Bauhaus wants to influence, inspire and put pressure on the sports clubs to make young people´s mental health a priority. Associations and leaders should give young athletes the right conditions to feel good with a focus on reduced pressure and more joy through sports.”
