PUPILS VOICES TRY STOPPIN’ THE MASSACRE OF ACCIDENTS AT WORK

 

 Yesterday it was one of the busiest days for this blog. People were really struck by “Mydaddy” clip which focuses attention on the dramatic “war report” about a year (2011) of accidents at works in Italy (1,170 deads and over 775,000 injuries). The problem affects not only Italy, but all the so called “civilized world”. The numbers of deathes and injuries are really impressive, often forgotten by the media themselves, who give titles to the phenomenon only in the presence of emotional or numeric high-impact tragedies.

For this reason it is urgent to raise voice and the guard. Even with a message. How “Mydaddy” clip does. The videoclip supports “First in Safety”, an Italian social campaign for the prevention of accidents at work which invites schools – and young people – to confront the problem. This campaign – at its 10th edition – is promoted by ROSSINI TRADING Spa, ANMIL (the italian Association for injured people) and OKAY! monthly magazine. It’s unique in Italy and Europe and maybe in the global world (at least for continuity, originality and effectiveness).

“Mydaddy” videoclip was conceived and produced by Roberto Alborghetti, reporter, writer and visual artist, with the participation of talented students of the second class of the Primary School “P.Mazzi” in Piancastagnaio (Siena). Uploaded on YouTube and VodPod– also in special version with English subtitles – and shared by multiple sites, the clip has become a sort of original spot not only for “First in Safety” campaign, but also for its aim to support the prevention message. Disarmingly simple yet remarkably effective, the video was made at the end of an educational workshop.

The pupils produced drawings on school safety and discussed about workplace injuries that involved mom and dad (from here the title). The clip – made in collaboration with the School Institute in Piancastagnaio, the Municipality of Piancastagnaio (with the major Fabrizio Agnorelli) and Osa non-profit organization (with President Nicola Cirocco) – is an original document on what school may and must do about prevention of accidents at work. As stated in the videoclip final message, “prevention is the lethal weapon to stop the war bulletin” of the deaths and injuries at work.

PLANTS HAVE EYES. THOSE OF CHILDREN (PART TWO)

 

 People asked me to show more beautiful drawings made by Italian students about plants world. I received the suggestion and here you may admire some other pictures… Really nice pics!

Flower Council Holland– through Okay!monthly magazine – had asked the Italian schoolsto draw “the plant that I like”, flower plantsand indoor plants. The outcome was better than expected. About 3.000 the drawings sent to promoters, confirming that the invitation launched by the Flower Council Holland has turned into an opportunity to look around, discover and learn about the wonderful world of plants that offer color, comfort, serenity and well-being, to people, to environment and to our homes. Last week, students participated to the awards ceremony, that taked place at “Le Due Torri”, a big shopping center in Stezzano-Bergamo, in Milan Area.

A mass of colored drawings tell us that plants talk and caress us with their discreet presence. And now, with these thousands of drawings, we may look at the plants through the eyes of children. And also plants have eyes. Those of children.

By the way, I created a videoclip. Here the YouTube link:
