Solidarity technology that will change the world

tecnologia-solidale

The third millennium appears on the scene of world history bringing with it many problems and complexities and opening the doors to many new questions for mankind.
If on the one hand the so-called 'modernity' and the new technological discoveries have changed our lifestyle, even claiming to improve it – and we range from medicine to cosmetics via agri-food, transport, even clothing – on the other hand these same technologies present us a series of not insignificant difficulties that bring human evolution back several decades from a social and above all working point of view.
We think of the many obsolete industries forced to close or reconvert, of the hundreds of thousands of jobs lost as a result of the economic crises that follow the new post-industrial ways of living, and conversely of the many jobs that could develop but are still struggling to emerge.
Luckily the 'new world' he found the appropriate medicine by himself by modifying his own structures of cohesion and sharing

Today we talk a lot about sharing economy, a collaborative economy, based on reuse rather than production, free access rather than ownership, collaboration rather than business, let us think of Uber for example, with all its pros and cons, with all the controversy it has aroused. But what is causing the most sensation today is the new vision of solidarity technology that globalization is imposing on us.
It makes a stir because the new mink it also conquers companies and industrialized countries!
An example is provided by the very recent case that involved us 40 countries of the world who financed the project. Is called 'New Safe Confinement' (NSC) it's the new one 'sarcophagus' – to replace the old one, deteriorated and melted by radioactive materials still in activity – placed for new closure and containment of the reactor n.4 of the Chenobyl Nuclear Power Plant which had the dramatic accident of April 26, 1986. The works began on 13 March 2012 involving over a thousand workers from twenty-five countries, including twenty-two Italian workers and engineers. Unfortunately, the relations between Russia and Ukraine, compromised since the first months of 2014, have caused a (brief) interruption of the works due to the withdrawal of Russian funds and specialized personnel, which however have been replaced by the Ukrainian one. Now, finally completed, the sarcophagus was fixed in 5 days and they assure that it will last 100 years. A report of Chernobyl Forum drawn up by agencies of theUN (WHO, UNSCEAR, IAEA and others), has 65 confirmed deaths and more than 4,000 cases of thyroid cancer among those aged between 0 and 18 at the time of the disaster, a large proportion of which were probably attributable to radiation. Most of these cases have been treated with favorable prognoses. As of 2002, there had been 15 deaths. The sarcophagus was immediately placed, by the Ukrainian government, to close the Central Lenin, this is the name of the plant that exploded, but soon merged.
In the 1990s, the Ukrainian government promoted an international competition aimed at selecting the best project to replace the old sarcophagus. Novarka, a consortium of French companies was awarded the contract. And just yesterday he installed the new structure.
It will require maintenance regarding oxidation and resistance to winds passing through the site. It cost a billion and a half and Italy also contributed to the expense, but a company from Pordenone supplied a large part of the 25,000 tons of steel needed to build it. 300 meters from the reactor – which has yet to be definitively cleaned and emptied and which in any case will remain active for hundreds of years with its 800 tons of the most dangerous radioactive material in the world – serves as a container and obstacle to prevent rain or wind from dispersing radioactive material in the environment. It may be, said Shekstelo, spokesman for the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (ChNPP) complex some time ago, that one day we arrive at a technological development such as to be able to have means and tools suitable for the complete removal of debris and radioactive waste

For this the House of Representatives organized a very interesting conference on 'Solidarity Technology'

The conference "Solidarity technology 2016" will take place on Thursday 1 December, at 2.30 pm, in the Sala del Mappamondo of Palazzo Montecitorio.

Welcome greetings by Simone Baldelli, Vice-President of the Chamber.
Introduction by Antonio Palmieri, deputy of the Innovation Intergroup.

The appointment, transmitted live web tv, will be divided into three panels:
1. Solidarity technology and the initiatives of large companies;
2. Startups and Solidarity Technology Initiatives;
3. The point of view of the institutions.
