WANT TO INFLUENCE OPINIONS ABOUT ECO-LIFESTYLES?

PUBLICATION DATE: October 28th 2020

SustainABILITY is a student group born in 2018 aiming to create a greener approach to everyday life. We have collaborated with the municipality of Padova to organize a cycle of conferences with a strong focus on sustainability, linking it to concrete subjects such as waste management, mobility and nutrition. From those encounters SustainABILITY decided to compile the results of our research in the publication, “Guida dello Studente Sostenibile” - a theoretical and practical guide to help youth in Padova become more informed about environmental-related issues. Our motto is #nonlasciamounimpronta (#dontleaveafootprint), which means “Our activism aims to encourage people to consume less and better, adopting a greener lifestyle”. We are proud to partner with SET to extend this initiative to HRG students. These partnerships have the potential to improve our community and your involvement plays a major role in shaping a more sustainable future.
