Enactus Padova is a team of Bachelor and Master students from all around Italy and all around the world attending Università degli Studi di Padova. Our trait d’union is our shared commitment to entrepreneurial actions to improve people’s lives. Together we developed two sustainability-oriented projects having both a social and an environmental impact.

The name of the project is a reference to the “boiling frog syndrome”, a metaphor used to describe the inability to act against a problematic situation until it slowly reaches
catastrophic proportions. In this case, the environmental crisis is the boiling water and We are the green creatures enjoying the slow ride towards the disaster. We provide to people with different backgrounds accessible and digestible information on how to reduce their GHG emissions while building a community of like-minded people who can help each other learn and grow. We make partnerships with businesses that meet specific standards on sustainability, giving customers a list of places they can trust.
