Mexedia S.p.a. SB's highly technological and sustainable mission embraces the most pressing and contemporary demands for long-term, eco-sustainable and socially oriented development. To give these demands a voice, a Benefit Unit has been set up.
The Benefit Unit, Mexedia's institutional tool, aims to create shared value by pursuing social, environmental protection and inclusiveness goals through the development of green technologies geared toward protecting and safeguarding the individual. Established since July 2022, it has important projects in progress.
Think Tech is our project launched for 2023. This ambitious initiative focuses on new technologies, so that together we can rethink a more responsible approach to their use. Aimed at everyone, in any setting – family, school or work – it seeks to rebuild the foundations of real technology education, from the earliest years of life. That's why many of the activities are aimed at school children, who are most exposed to the risks of the misuse of technology. While it's true that technology represents a great opportunity, if not correctly applied it can lead to dangerous situations, especially for young children.
Think Tech's projects aim to encourage young people to adopt a conscious and responsible approach to new technologies, both in and out of the classroom, with a particular focus on the threat posed by cyberbullying and the construction of their own digital identity.
O-District, the coworking space that hosts us, is based on the highest standards of environmental protection and energy efficiency. This is evidenced by the guidelines followed in the recent renovation of the building, which was completed with the installation of photovoltaic panels. Inside, we've also set up five patented Less CO2 machines, which quickly compensate for the carbon dioxide produced, neutralizing 1 kg of CO2 in just 11 minutes: much faster than a tree would do. These are important steps towards carbon neutrality, which is increasingly a must to achieve.
Led by Anna Lisa Trulli, Mexedia's Benefit Unit team is composed of cross-disciplinary professionals who firmly believe that social commitment, respect for the environment and investment in technology can and should go hand in hand.
