national sports meeting to raise awareness among 2,000 young people about Disability and the proper use of digital technology

At the Champ Fleuri stadium, 210 young people are participating this May 15 in the Good Connections sporting event. As part of its partnership with Paris 2024 and its “For Good Connections” initiative launched at the start of the year to strengthen its commitment to youth protection, Orange organized a large-scale meeting to raise awareness among 2,000 young people in France against the risks of digital.

This unique event takes place simultaneously in the stadiums of Bordeaux, Issy-les-Moulineaux, Lille, Marseille, Nantes, Les Abymes in Guadeloupe and Saint Denis de La Réunion. It brings together more than 2,000 girls and boys, equally, aged 10 to 14, able-bodied or with disabilities, for a day of awareness of the good uses of digital technology and the discovery of disabled sports. This day is part of the continuity of awareness-raising actions on the good uses of digital technology carried out for years within amateur clubs, in partnership with the French Football Federation and the French Rugby Federation. Over the past two years, nearly 300,000 young girls and boys have been made aware of the risks of cyberharassment, online hatred and hyperconnection.

In Reunion, the event takes place at the Stade de Champ Fleuri, under the aegis of Elizabeth Tchoungui, Executive Director in charge of CSR for the Orange Group, and André Martin, General Manager of Orange Réunion Mayotte.

With the help of 12 amateur football clubs, 1 disabled sports association and 15 volunteer employees, Orange offers young people the opportunity to participate in 3 fun and sporting field exercises followed by a time of discussion with employee ambassadors from Orange Réunion as well as as the coaches of the Réunion Football League.

– a cyberharassment awareness workshop focusing on online tolerance and responsibility. – a discovery workshop at Cécifoot. Able-bodied young people are placed in a handicap situation.

– two quizzes on cyberbullying and disability to allow young people to memorize essential information and reinforce the learning of good reflexes.

The 12 finalist clubs for the Orange Cup 2023, and the Regional Institute for the Deaf and Blind are thus alongside Orange at Champ Fleuri.

Elizabeth Tchoungui emphasizes that “All the work we do to promote the inclusion, well-being, safety and non-discrimination of children around the world is part of our history. Today’s young people are the actors of tomorrow’s society. We are convinced that it is our responsibility to help build a safer digital world for them, and this is a commitment that we will continue, this is the meaning of “For Good Connections”. And this is also why, through our Orange Digital Center programs, we support parents and children in their digital uses. »
