World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS+10): listening to the stakeholders

Focus
July 2, 2015

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) will be assessing the current situation within the framework of the Millennium Goals at the United Nations General Assembly on 2 July 2015.

On this occasion, Vivendi extends its congratulations to Divina Frau-Meigs, a media sociologist and Director of CLEMI (Centre for liaison between teaching and the information media), which is part of the French Ministry of Education.  Divina has been selected to address the United Nations General Assembly during the WSIS+10 consultations to be held in New York on 2 July.  She will be representing civil society and more particularly the community of research workers and educators.  These hearings are an opportunity for the representatives of various partner entities to give their views on the Summit's implementation and suggest perspectives for the coming decade, in the context of sustainable development. 

Vivendi is all the more delighted that Divina Frau-Meigs' work should be recognised in this way as this international expert has been sharing her reflections on media literacy and the necessity of promoting cultural diversity in the global information society with the Group for the past 10 years.

In fact, Vivendi not only partners Unesco's Chair, "Savoir devenir à l’ère du développement numérique durable" (Developing in the age of digital sustainable development), but was also associated with the first European Media and Information Literacy Forum which took place in Paris in May 2014. This Forum, held on the initiative of the European Commission and Unesco, brought together governments, audiovisual authorities, institutions, experts, teachers, media professionals, industry, researchers and NGOs with the aim of promoting media literacy in Europe, discussing MIL (Media and Information Literacy) policies in the Union and encouraging cooperation and initiatives at national and European levels. Vivendi was a member of the committee that drafted the Paris Declaration on Media and Information Literacy in the Digital Era, thereby sharing its vision of corporate social responsibility (CSR) within the media and cultural sector.
