Get your company involved in Paris in this "solidarity" race!

A sporty and festive time that gives the opportunity to gather your employees and your network at the end of the summer holidays but also during the months of preparation of the festival.

The Odyssey offers companies the opportunity to join the adventure by integrating a solidarity programme. With its Cultural Olympiad label, the Odyssey invites its partners to take part in the whirlwind of the 2024 Olympic Games from today.

Why is this a major CSR initiative?

The Odyssey aims to have a strong social impact by bringing together and federating inhabitants of working-class neighbourhoods, associations in the social field, schools, sports clubs, cultural establishments and companies. The Odyssey's actions contribute to the professional integration of the participants and to the mix of practices. They generate a territorial dynamic through the Course en solidaire.

It also democratizes a shared and ecological use of waterways with the rediscovery of a vast territory and its imaginary. The project reminds us that these spaces are part of the public good common to all and invites us to take a fresh look at them.

Important: The Odyssey is a project recognised as being of general interest by the Artutti endowment fund, which allows you to benefit from a 60% tax exemption on your financial contributions.
