The Speakers' Corner project, whose first experimental edition was held on 5 October 2020 at Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano during the Swiss Digital Days, launches a series of short video contributions in which students tell about the projects developed for the event. Speakers' Corner is a project promoted by the City of Lugano and the Lugano Living Lab, in which USI, together with other universities in Southern Switzerland, also participated: an initiative that stems from the desire to promote concrete projects to raise awareness on digital issues by enhancing skills in the area.
