Silvia Nizzetto: “Digi and Lode circular economy of digital”

“The Digi e Lode initiative promotes what we today commonly define as ‘good practice’,” commented Silvia Nizzetto, councilor for education in the municipality of Treviso. The project acts primarily on adults with a direct and effective effect of pedagogical awareness, which has as recipients the primary schools and thus the students. The good practice adopted by the families activates a “counter”, which actually pours a share to be invested in digitization within the winning schools as a kind of proactive “circular economy”. In summary, “Digi and Lode” want to add value to behaviors that generate a positive and instructive engine for society as a whole. A synergy between units that is increasingly widespread and strengthens the concept of joint collaboration ”.
