The ÏDKIDS community in partnership with the World Forum 2018

The theme of the 12th World Forum held from 16 to 18 October 2018 in Lille will be “THE CHALLENGE OF REGIONS AND CITIES”. Read on to find out more!

The World Forum for a Responsible Economy is an event aimed at entrepreneurs who are committed to a responsible economy. The event is organized by Réseau Alliances, the driving force behind major regional projects such as the Third Industrial Revolution and Social Business Nord de France.

“Why is it important for a business to develop a combined global and local approach? What is the role and impact of a business on its local region?   How can multinationals contribute to the regions? How can developing a responsible regional economy be an opportunity for business? How can regions work together when they are often in competition?” These questions will be discussed and debated at the 12th forum, where experience-sharing and corporate best practice are also on the agenda.

Partner to the Réseau Alliances and proud of its Roubaix roots, dating back to when Okaïdi was founded in 1996, the ÏDKIDS community has always been involved in these events.

And this year it is inviting World Forum participants to visit its new head office for four interactive round tables on Tuesday 16 October.

The round tables will demonstrate how ÏDKIDS brands are taking concrete steps in their communities — both in France and overseas — to make a real difference by:

  • Helping society’s most vulnerable and encouraging inclusion
  • Contributing to educational goals
  • Offering parenting support
  • Showing solidarity with a commitment to zero waste

Whether in Roubaix, Paris or Shanghai, the entire global ÏDKIDS community is changing its environment for the better and strengthening the ties that bind its stakeholders.
