Debate about the addictiveness of digital devices and applications, and its impact on individuals and society is heated. Although there is no clear scientific consensus on the severity of the issue, policy-makers are likely to face mounting pressure from worried citizens. How should the issue be approached, what are the chances of regulating it and who has the responsibility for protecting users, especially children, from the potentially detrimental effects of exessive use of digital technology?

Innovation & economic issues
The digitization of the public administration is fundamental to foster the digital transformation of a country. In Italy over 60% of public employees have more than 50 y.o. this issue, together with the strong resistance to change typical of a low dynamic environment such as the Italian Public administration, makes the digitazion revolution very difficult. The pandemic has shown the urgency to complete the digitization process both for citizens and entrepreneurs. The Public administration should be the starting point of the Italian digital transformation leading a cultural and infrastructural revolution necessary to the country. In order to pursue such an objective the Chamber of Commerce of Cosenza structured a whole plan that begins with the chamber digitization and ends to the firm digital transformation. The plan consists in: • mapping employees digital competencies • fostering an agile smart working (results should be measured on the ability of each employees to be resilient, efficient, creative as well as flexible and rapid) • fostering the spread of digital competences among peers (each employee could ask for support of a colleague who knows more about a digital subject; each employe could use part of his working hours to help a colleague who’s in need on a digital subject) • ensuring the transfer of digital knowledge to firms where they are (reaching entrepreneurs exactly where they work sending officers directly to their firms)

Innovation & economic issues
Due to its deep connection with all 17 SDGs, the digital revolution can be considered the main tool to support a transition to a sustainable economy on a global scale. All public administration should be interested and committed to a technological and sustainable economic transition fostered also by the recent pandemic. The Chamber of Commerce of Cosenza is strongly committed to pursuing the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the UN 2020 agenda. As evidence of its commitment, the Chamber entered the Global Pact of the United Nations. In 2021, the Cosenza Chamber of Commerce intends to publish the sustainability report for the first time. The report is mandatory only for European companies of public interest or with more than five hundred employees, whose consolidated financial statements meet certain criteria established by law. The decision to produce and publish the sustainability report is just a part of a global sustainable programm of this public administration.
