Dexia TV, the Dexia Group magazine, has three new online reports on topical
1) Environment: "Waste processing: a vital concern for society"
All the experts are unanimous: it is vital that we overcome the increase in
household waste and its effects on the environment. But what becomes of waste
sorted by households? Once it arrives at the sorting centre, what actually happens
to it? Visit and meet those in charge of the Sorting Centre at Nanterre, managed
2) Economy: "Micro credits: a major advance for the world economy"
The UN declared 2005 "Year of Micro-Credits". But what is a micro-credit?
What is at stake and who are the beneficiaries? Is it only a reality in the
countries of the South? Is not Europe also involved? Interview with Michel Camdessus,
Director General of the IMF from 1987 to 2000.
3) Social matters: "An original social initiative: an old folks' fashion
The "centre communal d'action sociale" (CCAS) [Communal Centre for
Social Action] in the town of Narbonne organised a fashion parade for senior
citizens. Too often associated with handouts, social action can also exist under
the spotlights, and improve the life of old folk. Meet the enthusiastic participants
in this parade, and Michel Moynier, Mayor of Narbonne.
As in the previous edition, these three reports meet the objectives set by
the Dexia Group when it launched this new magazine: to position itself in real
terms as a major actor, a facilitator, with a desire to feed debate, to promote
good practice, to inform and to explain the stakes involved in sustainable development.
Since going online on 13 May last, Dexia TV, the magazine for sustainable development,
has achieved great success, and already recorded more than 40,000 visits.
That number of visits backs up the institutional signature of the Dexia Group,
"the bank for sustainable development", fulfilling the expectations
of internet users.
