Futuro Remoto 2021

24 November, 2021 - 27 November, 2021
Naples (IT) / Online webinar

RM Ambassadors played with students during the “Futuro Remoto” (“Distant Future”) event in Naples using the RM@Schools games ‘EcoCEO’, which brings circular economy strategies and business models to the classroom and makes students familiar with raw material challenges, circular product design and sustainable entrepreneurship, and ‘RockGame: the rock cycle”, which proposes a full immersion in the world of minerals and rocks by combining the Rock Game board with the RockCheck app and the direct observation of samples.

In addition to the live gaming sessions, RM@Schools also participated to the event with an online webinar titled “Let’s Shed Some Light: From Edison’s Lamp to OLEDs”. Starting from a common incandescent light bulb, we went through the fundamental steps that led to the development of increasingly efficient light sources. They are capable of emitting much more light and consuming less. This leads to the new generation of lamps: solid state lamps, LED (Light Emitting Diode) and OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode). Introducing the concept of critical raw material, it was explained why these materials are so important for sustainable development and why they are defined as critical by the European Community.

RM Ambassadors: Renata Lapinska-Viola, Armida Torreggiani, Alberto Zanelli, Lorenzo Forini & Emilia Benvenuti
