Energy Festival, from 12 to 14 May in Milan a three days of free events to which we are all invited to participate. To listen and invest some of our time, and also wanting our participatory energies, in view of a near future in which the forms of energy in use are chosen increasingly in harmony with the idea of respecting the environment.
Now in its ninth edition, the Energy Festival this year aims to develop the concept "Energy to Come, the right to the future”Proceeding along three guidelines: geopolitics, innovation, sustainability. They are not three parallel tracks but three important strands to be intertwined with the skill and collaboration of the many actors involved. The three days scheduled in Milan will also serve this purpose, especially thanks to a new format of public hearing which sees politicians listening to the demands of the energy supply chain "live".
Energy Festival: where
Significant than the Energy Festival the locations chosen to be the theater for the meetings are projected towards the future and upwards. We are in Milan and, at most, in one of the districts that has mostly become a symbol of positive change and technology.
We are betweenUnicredit Pavilion, in piazza Gae Aulenti 10, and the Catella Foundation, in via de Castilla 28, a few steps from the Milano Porta Garibaldi railway station and the MM5 ISOLA and MM2- MM5 Garibaldi F.S. Why al Energy Festival you can get there by public transport. True?
In the heart of the most modern city in the country, in its most innovative and international area, the three days of Energy Festival they can only find the right atmosphere to look at the future of energy with a proactive and positive spirit in view of techno / digital, political and environmental change in place. Inevitably, sometimes fortunately, inexorably.
Energy Festival: what it is
The Energy Festival is the largest national event dedicated to energy issues, it is an annual but secular and super partes event in which companies, politics, institutions, research, media, civil society and opinion leaders. The only position taken is the green one, with a wink to the future without too much "crying about wasted energy".
The Energy Festival from 12 to 14 May proposes round tables, comparisons and leading talks around the topic, this year, as anticipated, the reference concept is "Energy to Come, the right to the future". Sometimes more technically, others in a more colloquial and friendly way, there will be the opportunity to intercept and make our own innovative thinking, the culture of excellence and economic dynamics.
To have our say, to get an idea, to plan big or even more simply to apply the most of the most in everyday life virtuous and energetically convenient.
Energy Festival: objectives
"There is no future without innovation, there is no innovation without a vision of change, there is no vision of change without sustainability": with three simple but important steps, this is how he explains his vision on the future of energy Alexander Beulcke, president of Aris (Information and Society Research Agency), a reality that promotes the Energy Festival in partnership with Greening Marketing Italy (GMI), a consulting company committed to promoting the green economy and supporting technological-environmental innovation.
Francesco Ferrante (administrator of GMI and vice president of the Kyoto Club) promises that "at the Festival we will discuss the most effective choices to allow our country to play a leading role in the current energy revolution", not forgetting, indeed, reminding us that on April 22 the world leaders have signed in New York the agreement shared in Paris on the occasion of the COP21 and that the topic of energy, including investments, is increasingly at the center of the world debate.
