From the 21st to the 26th of October the 11th edition of the Energy Week will take place, the event conceived and promoted by Confartigianato in order to raise awareness of the community on energy and environmental issues.
The event is part of the initiatives of the Italian Presidency of EUSALP. It consists of six days of events, seminars, and guided tours to promote the culture of responsible consumption, investigate the technical and regulatory aspects of the green economy, create opportunities for aggregation and professional retraining through the offer of new services.
The title chosen for the 2019 edition is "We put energy into circulation: the challenges of the circular economy, a choice inspired by values such as sharing, reuse, recycling, regeneration of raw materials, products, resources and reuse of waste. Cornerstones that are at the base of the circular economy, a system designed to regenerate itself, which is maintained through re-use and which minimizes waste.
The inaugural event aims to present this particular perspective of reading the theme of the circular economy and introduce the programming of the entire Energy Week, ideally continuing the dialogue started in the previous editions.
Before the official opening, the docufilm "A Plastic Ocean" will be screened for students belonging to lower and upper secondary schools, followed by the presentation of the homonymous Multimedia Competition, with the aim of stimulating new generations of students reflections on the "sustainability" dimension of the Circular Economy, also in coherence with what the European Union is doing, in the fight against plastic consumption.
There is a rich program of promoted initiatives aimed at entrepreneurs, professionals, representatives of institutions, students and citizens: a program that unfolds between meetings, workshops, conferences, initiatives for schools and free film screenings that will be developed in Bergamo and in other Lombard provinces thanks to the involvement of the entire regional system of Confartigianato Lombardia.
