- ODYSS’ ET FORME
The teams at the Odysseum store (Montpellier) decided to build a project with the Ligue contre l’obésité association, a French anti-obesity charity. They had the idea of creating fitness trails in the city using existing infrastructure.
The aim is to enable obese people to make exercise part of their daily life. Each week, yoga and Nordic walking activities will be organised by the store teams in order to build a relationship with the association’s beneficiaries.
- DES CROCHETS POUR RACCROCHER
