I think it is particularly appropriate to show our young people the potential for action and the responsibility they will have in shaping our territory.
Flavio Maccanelli's answers about Engineers' Day.
When and in what context did you first hear about Engineers' Day (then Engineers' Day)?
When I joined the Pini Group three years ago. Similar events to bring the younger generation closer to our professional world had been organized before and always attracted the attention of companies.
Your company has been involved in Engineers' Day for several men. Why are you involved in this event?
It is important to get the "Next Gen" interested in our profession and to make them aware of the impact our profession has on society and the country.
What goals would you highlight as the most important priority in terms of your involvement in Engineers' Day or everyday life?
All of the goals of Engineers' Day are important. I think it is especially important to show our young people the potential for action and the responsibility they will have in shaping our country.
Why do you think engineers and their achievements are under-appreciated in everyday life, and what can engineers do about it?
Although our work is quite structured, it is very complicated because it involves many different stakeholders and interests. In addition, the technical content is not accessible to everyone. Under these circumstances, it is difficult to reach a broad population. Therefore, more emphasis should be placed on simple and understandable communication, not only when it is necessary (votes), but also throughout the process.
If you had one wish to be able to influence the promotion of young people even more, to whom would it go and what would that wish be?
Targeted information should be promoted to schools before leaving for ETH or UAS and events should be offered to make our profession known.
Do you have another wish in connection with Engineers' Day?
To arouse the interest of as many young prospective engineers as possible.
