A regular and constructive dialogue

Since 2006, Vivendi has launched a cycle of CSR meetings between the Chairman of the Management Board and civil society members. Therefore, in 2015, the Chair of Vivendi’s Management Board organized a meeting with representatives of civil society (institutions, artists, financial community, start-ups and the academic world) to discuss the responsibility of the different players in relation to cultural diversity.
Two innovative digital tools: Culture(s) with Vivendi and Vivoice
Because discussions with stakeholders bring new ideas and suggestions to any group that keeps abreast of its partners’ concerns, the CSR department has created two innovative digital tools: the website Culture(s) with Vivendi and the CSR web radio Vivoice.
Culture(s) with Vivendi has actively pursued its objective of showing all the ways in which the cultural industries and the media sector have a role to play in fostering economic growth, strengthening social cohesion, encouraging intercultural living together and promoting innovation. The website also showcases the wide array of artists signed by the group and the different professions within the media sector.
Vivoice is Vivendi’s favored media to dialog with the group’s stakeholders. CSR topics are regularly discussed in special programs and interviews with those who are engaged in CSR.
