Vivendi involved in the Safer Internet Day

 

Vivendi once again takes part in the European Safer Internet Day for a safer Internet for youth on February 11, titled “Let’s create a better internet together” this year. Around this theme, Vivoice, the Vivendi webradio, organizes a special program with two roundtables.

In the year of the 25th anniversary of the International Convention of the Child Rights of the United Nations, the quality of young people’s digital life is a particular issue and it is important to pay attention to girls and boys stereotypes spread online. This will be the first debate in the presence of Mary Derain, French Defender of Children to the Rights Defender, Bénédicte Jeannerod, Director of Advocacy and Communication to UNICEF and Marie-Cécile Naves, Sociologist and Representative to the French Commissioner General for Strategy and Foresight.

Internet is also a tool that enables young people to practice active citizenship and to access new opportunities. This will be the theme of the second debate with Muriel Epstein, Founder of Transapi, Erwan Kezzar, Co-founder of Simplon.co and Francis Benthanane, originator of Web@cadémie.

The debates (in French) will take place on February 11 at 5pm Paris Time on www.vivendi.com/vivoice. Follow also the livetweet on twitter: @WebradioVivoice or #Vivoice.
