Institution profile

"Fenice Park" was established in 2001 with the aim to reclaim an abandoned and heavily polluted green area (6 ha) including public bodies (Industrial Area of Padua Consortium – Consorzio ZIP) and civil organizations (CNGEI Scout Association).
Later (2004), they committed themselves to the creation of the first didactic park for renewable energy sources to encourage sustainable and responsible behaviour among entrepreneurs from the nearby industrial estate, as well as local public administrators, educational institutions, associations, and private citizens.
It is a completely innovative body located within a unique natural context (a small island within the city) beside the industrial area of Padua, Italy, where a 1.8 km path has been built that is used by an average of 6,000 students (6-25 years old) every year, allowing them to learn how renewable energy sources actually work. Recently, an Energy House has been added to host public meetings and conferences as well as seminars or training courses for employees, entrepreneurs and the unemployed.
