Why Enel has chosen Campus Party
To implement the PlayEnergy project, Enel chose Campus Party due to its international presence in more than 15 countries worldwide and its ability to innovate and approach young people through unconventional but engaging activities.
Campus Party plays a leading role in supporting and developing talent, actively contributing to the creation of initiatives that can generate a positive impact on society and people.
Play Energy is the initiative that Enel dedicates to youngsters in order to build a sustainable, innovative and accessible future together.The project developed with Campus Party has an international scope and is addressed to youngsters between 7 and 18 years of age.
PlayEnergy participants, divided into teams of up to 8 members and accompanied by tutors, through a digital itinerary, will embark on a series of online missions to discover the Circular Economy, in order to build a sustainable future together.
Participation in the missions, available on a dedicated online platform, will allow the teams to accumulate points, based on which, the most deserving project will be selected to enter the next phase: the PlayEnergy Hackathon at the Campus Party event.
The big environmental and social challenges we face today require a profound review of the existing economic model: the linear economic growth model has proved to be unsustainable in a globalized world.
This need has in recent years accelerated the affirmation of a new paradigm, called circular economy, in order to review the way we use matter and energy, in terms of design, production, use and management of so-called “waste”.
Production and usage model based on renewable inputs or those from previous life cycles (reuse and recycling).
Management systems common to several users of products, goods or skills.
PRODUCT AS A SERVICE
A business model in which the customer, instead of purchasing ownership of a product, purchases the related service, e.g. car sharing.
USEFUL LIFE EXTENSION
Approach to the design and management of an asset or product aimed at extending its useful life, e.g. through modular design, ease of repair, predictive maintenance.
NEW LIFE CYCLES
any solution aimed at preserving the value of an asset at the end of a life cycle through reuse, regeneration, upcycling or recycling, in synergy with the other pillars.
