The third edition of the National Festival of Civil Economy was born out of an idea of the federations (National Association of Co-operative Credit Banks, Cas Rally, Casey Raiffeisen), which promotes Confederation and Next (NUVOA). Economia per Tutti) and the section (School of Civil Economics) and the contribution of Fondosvillepo.
Leonardo Bechetti (Director of the National Festival of Civil Economy and co-founder of Next Novo Economy Per Tutti);
“Data – Bechetti says – tell us that the basic roots of satisfaction in the richness of the meaning of life are generative. The living civil economy is: the creation of economic value to prevent the opposite from happening, that is, to lead to unemployment, exploitation, illegal employment and economic emergency.
Bechetti said, “Opportunities come from three sides: First, companies have already made good practices in this area. We always say, ‘Yes, we can,’ but if someone has already made them elsewhere, we can always. So good practices show us the way.”
For example, active citizenship, such as the creation of an energy community, e.g. These days we talk a lot about bill increases, but in reality we as citizens can be energy producers and consumers: we learn to fold our hands instead of complaining.
The third component is policies: policies that indicate what we require of institutions to create this world of opportunity. These are policies that create economic value, environmental and social sustainability. The lowest priced tenders in school canteens are enough, but you can try to develop free rental products everywhere.
“For the first time this year – Bechetti concludes – the National Civil Economy Festival opens to the world, in the meantime connecting with young people who will be performing on Friday in the future and talking about what happened in Afghanistan.”
For more than a century, co-operative credit banks have existed not only as a local system but, above all, as a community system. We – del Erba said – are the only banking system, entirely Italian, and its owners are only in areas where the bank itself operates. From an entrepreneurial point of view this is a great example of a civil economy: the community is organized in a civilized manner, creating entrepreneurship and preserving the benefits from it within the region itself. Speaking about the relationship with the region, Dell Erba added: “As a bank we are a manifestation of the region itself. A true moral example.
“Organized – as Gardini declared – we have put in place good practices to create a cohesive development that knows how to revitalize communities and regions to reduce social inequalities as much as possible. We can understand how to lead to a new work model, without confronting the public through a character of the civil economy, and it is the project that gives nationalism its essence and realism. “
Speaking about youth and work, Gardini said: “I worry a lot about young people, but not only that. I am also concerned about those who will lose their jobs in their 50s and who may disappear completely from the world of work. Poverty and social security nets should be addressed and work should be given priority. Therefore, we should look at those who are unable to do so and be concerned about providing intervention and job security. Even the scholarly path should be closer to those who work with active policies, however, it can bring those who have lost it before into operational reality.
“The real recovery – he concluded – is that the real challenge is to incorporate technical and sustainable recovery, which still requires manpower: machines alone cannot carry the country along with recovery. The human component is fundamental.”
For Elena Granata, the focus should be on youth: «Here in Florence, we found that the squares are full of young people. I think about the future Friday youth of a sustainable and environmentally sound future: we adults, schools, teachers and companies must live up to their expectations. A generation that wants us to be more serious and active in our environmental mitigation interventions. In the world of work, when young people are offered jobs with decent wages, we say they do not want to work: this is not the case. We did not understand the seriousness of what they were waiting for us at the gate. During these festive days – he continued – we want to tell another story: of the institutions involved and of the teachers who are thinking about how to explain the economy to this new generation. The festival is a place where entrepreneurs who take up this new challenge speak directly to the youth.
