The winning students of the second edition of Acea Scuola Digital, the project aimed at raising awareness among young people on energy saving and sustainability have been awarded.
Rome, 6 June 2022 – Acea sides with young people for the energy of the future and to raise students’ awareness on sustainability and energy saving. These are the goals of the project 'SiAMO energia! Spegni la luce e accendi la tua fantasia' (We are energy! Turn off the light and turn on your imagination!), the second digital edition of the ACEA SCUOLA initiative, which ended today with the award ceremony for the winning schools. The event was opened by Acea President Michaela Castelli and was attended by the CEO of the Group Giuseppe Gola, the Assessor for School, Training and Labour of Roma Capitale Claudia Pratelli, Acea Head of Investor Relations & Sustainability Stefano Songini, Areti CEO Massimo Bonato, Acea Energia Chief Commercial Officer Mauro Accroglianò and Acea Head of Communication Tiziana Flaviani.
The initiative is part of a programme launched by Acea Group in 2002 to promote informative and training activities on environmental sustainability. It is an educational project aimed at raising students’ awareness through multimedia education. During this year’s edition, the 3D clips and the educational paths dealt with the challenges posed by the energy issue, such as the use of renewable sources or the need to reduce unnecessary consumption in everyday life.
The schools that joined the initiative took part into a contest in which students were invited to create video messages - of a maximum duration of 2 minutes - in order to express an idea concerning energy and energy saving, also considering the experience they lived during the pandemic. The first prize went to the Istituto Comprensivo Tacito Guareschi, the second to the Istituto Comprensivo Orsa Maggiore, and the third one to the Istituto Pincherle. The prizes will be distributed in vouchers to purchase technical material useful for teaching.
''Young people are the energy of the future. The initiative SiAMO energia! Spegni la luce e accendi la tua fantasia promoted by Acea Scuola was a great success. The students, through the videos they created, have showed great sensitivity to this issue and a remarkable creativity. Educating them on a responsible use of resources is fundamental when facing the challenge of energy transition. It is a challenge which we must take up together with young people to strengthen even more the culture of sustainability', said President of ACEA Group Michaela Castelli.
'Sustainability constantly guides our strategies. Due to initiatives like this, we are able to raise young people’s awareness on important issues and, above all, we try to open their minds to the need of changing our habits in everyday life. Because even the smallest action can mean so much for the environment', stated CEO of ACEA Group Giuseppe Gola.
