Italian Climate Network

Human rights and climate consultant, I've been passionate about gender issues since being denied the opportunity to play football "for being a girl". I collaborate with the Italian Climate Network, coordinating the Women, rights and climate section: I develop awareness-raising and informational activities on the connection between the climate and human rights, and participate in negotiations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change as an observer. I've been living in a green corner of London for a few years now, where I work for the Climate Bonds Initiative, a non-profit organisation that promotes investment in fighting climate change.
