(Padua-Treviso-Venice-Rovigo – 27.5.2024) – The eighth edition of the Information Technology project promoted by the BIT Club of Confindustria Veneto Est, the community of IT managers that brings together numerous IT managers of manufacturing companies in the area to offer training, comparison and benchmarking opportunities among professionals, has closed with the development of an app that teaches a sustainable lifestyle.

In the 2023-24 school year, from October to April, 14 students from the 4th grade of the Giorgione Scientific High School in Castelfranco Veneto, specialising in applied sciences, participated. The young people, divided into teams, challenged each other in the realisation of project charters and mockups, i.e. everything that precedes the realisation of an app, for an application aimed at helping users reduce their environmental impact and adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. The app offers a variety of tools, information and resources to promote conscious and responsible choices that contribute to environmental protection. Users can access real-time environmental data, receive personalised suggestions and share their sustainable actions with the community.

The aim of the project is to make students simulate the role of software developers, the professional relationship with a client/customer, the importance of respecting time, form, communication, and working in a team.

In addition to working in groups, the students had 33 hours of training in business organisation and project management, and carried out a workshop on problem solving. ‘I would like to thank the Liceo Giorgione with its Headmaster Professor Franco De Vincenzis and Professor Fabio Pozzebon for having shared this digital education programme, and of course all the students who worked on it with interest and competence,’ emphasises Alberto Fedalto, President of Club BIT. ‘In this year’s edition, we chose to combine the “double transition”, to digital and sustainability, which involves us not only in companies but also in our lifestyles and work, which these students were able to understand and interpret well. It is precisely IT and sustainability skills that are today the most sought-after in the labour market, and it is therefore appropriate to continue strengthening the collaboration between companies and schools in the area. We at Club BIT gladly give our availability, and entering schools always enriches us, humanly and professionally’.
