The second life of our PCs

Published on Thursday, 10 November 2016

“The new destination, for educational purposes, of computers no longer used by our company becomes an opportunity for the computerisation of schools. It is an initiative consistent with the strategy of Enel, which has placed the environmental, social and economic sustainability at the center of its corporate culture. ”

– Cinzia Corsetti, Head of Sustainability Italy

The project was launched in 2015, first with a feasibility study, then through a contest held in March 2016 in Verona with nine primary schools, for a total of 400 students and 153 works produced. Children were invited to produce drawings on the theme "The energy in all its forms". All drawings collected were exhibited in Verona’s Punto Enel and rated by customers who visited the store. An impartial jury that greatly appreciated the young pupils ‘creativity and expressiveness!

The first edition was received enthusiastically and we plan to carry forward the project in the following two years. In addition to the cooperation by Enel Energia’s management, Enel's ICT department played a remarkable part, working to optimise hardware and software, so to ensure that schools would receive efficient tools.

We look forward to the next edition: giving a second life to our PCs also means giving an opportunity to new generations.
