Crianças de 33 países e regiões assistem cerimônia organizada pela Panasonic no local do patrimônio mundial em Kyoto

A Panasonic Corporation (TOKYO:6752)(NYSE:PC) realizou uma cerimônia para homenagear os vencedores do seu concurso Eco Picture Diary Global Contest no Castelo Nijo, listado como patrimônio mundial na UNESCO, em Kyoto, Japão, na terça-feira, 6 de novembro. Em 3 de junho de 2011, a Panasonic e o centro do patrimônio mundial da UNESCO assinaram um acordo de parceria estratégica para promover o desenvolvimento sustentável através das atividades de educação ambiental e da conservação do patrimônio mundial para as próximas gerações. A cerimônia do Eco Picture Diary Global Contest foi realizada em conjunto com o 40o aniversário da Convenção do Patrimônio Mundial.

O Eco Picture Diary Global Contest é um programa que dá às crianças a oportunidade de aprender sobre questões do meio ambiente enquanto elas mantêm o controle de suas atividades ecológicas diariamente. Aproximadamente 300.000 crianças de 51 países e regiões participaram do concurso Eco Picture Diary Global Contest de 2012. Os vencedores nacionais de 33 países participaram e foram homenageados na cerimônia global em Kyoto. Cada uma das crianças fez uma apresentação de sua atividade ecológica exclusiva em seus respectivos países. Muitos dignitários estiveram presentes neste evento global, incluindo o prefeito de Kyoto, Daisaku Kadokawa, a diretora-geral da UNESCO, Irina Bokova, e a artista pela paz embaixatriz da UNESCO e mundialmente famosa cantora soprano Sarah Brightman. Em seu discurso, Sra. Bokova disse que o futuro brilhante está nas mãos das crianças e as encorajou a difundir atividades ecológicas entre família e amigos.

Em 7 de novembro, um dia depois da cerimônia, as crianças visitaram a escola primária Ryogaoka em Kyoto, para conhecer e interagir com seus colegas japoneses. Elas apreciaram o intercâmbio cultural e foram desafiadas para juntas fazer uma arte tradicional japonesa chamada "uchiwa", um leque feito de madeira e papel. Pela tarde, as crianças visitaram o templo de Kiyomizu, outro local do patrimônio mundial da UNESCO na antiga capital do Japão, como parte do programa de aprendizagem Eco Learning Program do patrimônio mundial da UNESCO. Neste programa, os alunos podem visitar e participar de um ambiente interativo para aprender sobre as atividades de conservação do patrimônio mundial em colaboração com a UNESCO e locais do patrimônio mundial. Desde o seu lançamento em 2011, o programa foi realizado em 10 países com a participação de aproximadamente 4.000 crianças. Durante a visita ao templo de Kiyomizu, as crianças participaram de um evento de troca de uma lâmpada especial. Cada uma das crianças participou de um revezamento para trocar lâmpadas do templo por lâmpadas LED e aprendeu como a eficiência energética da tecnologia de LED contribui para a proteção ambiental.

A Panasonic tem como meta ser a "empresa nº 1 em inovação verde na indústria eletrônica" em 2018, ano de seu 100o aniversário. A Panasonic está combinando as suas contribuições ambientais com o crescimento comercial, e também tem como meta proporcionar seus programas de educação ambiental para 2 milhões de crianças. O número total de alunos participantes no programa de educação ecológica da Panasonic desde o seu início em 2009 ultrapassou 1 milhão de crianças. A Panasonic vai continuar a trabalhar em proximidade com a UNESCO para ajudar a promover a consciência ecológica entre as crianças em todo o mundo.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
