Marc Pili
General Delegate
Vacances Ouvertes

« ECONOVIA has the ability to make us take action. The purpose of Econovia’s mission was to modernise our 15-year-old communication methods and overhaul our visual identity in order to make them more current. We wanted to broadcast our view of society, making sure that the message gets across even though the subject matter is complicated and hard to explain. We needed to be in tune with the times, and communication is where it starts. So we issued a tender, and Econovia immediately stood out from the rest. The agency had already worked with Edmond Maire, Vacances Ouvertes’ founder, so that was a guarantee of legitimacy for us. The agency reviewed the items that were already in place internally, and was able to properly reshape them while demonstrating a high degree of involvement. I was so pleased that I spread the word to the other organisations: I recommended that they work with ECONOVIA. »

Communications Director

« In 2013, we were in need of an expert for the media coverage of the associations’ trophy. Although we were used to dealing with large organizations, we shifted our attention to ECONOVIA, a human-scaled agency, due to its experience in terms of solidarity and social issues. Econovia brought a fresh perspective and exceeded the framework of its press relations assignment as it provided us with strategy consulting. At the EDF Foundation, we believe that communication should serve the public interest and be used as a tool to dialogue with society. Internally, it becomes a way to engage employees, both encouraging their involvement and opening up new possibilities. In an industry that is becoming increasingly professional, our role is to pave the way for change through shared communication that is fairer and built on our relationships with each other.»

Nadège Rodrigues
Communications Manager

« Trust. This is the word that comes to mind when I think of our collaboration with ECONOVIA for the media coverage of our « Jeun’ESS » programme. At a time when budgets are shrinking and competition is increasingly stiff, it’s a daily struggle for me to establish a mutualist spirit among those who strive for a Social and Solidarity Economy and to ensure recognition of the specialist know-how that drives responsible communication. I promote communication that serves the public interest and that backs general interest projects, guided by the principle that « actions speak louder than words ». Through our collaboration with ECONOVIA, I have witnessed co-construction, where experts have devoted their multiple skills for the benefit of a joint project. »


For each project it embarks on, the agency – which is home to expert senior consultants with high potential – engages a strong network of free and dedicated talents around a shared principle: love for work and a job well done. Our experts strive to converge your best interests with those of society. Some call this a « result-oriented culture ». At Econovia, we think of it as « communicative energy ». Load up on this energy!
