I hold an International Joint Master in Sustainable Territorial Development, an interdisciplinary course across four different universities and countries (Padova, IT - Leuven, BE - Paris, FR – Campo Grande, BR). As part of the program, I carried out an internship in Brazil at Banco Palmas, the first and major community bank of the country. Previously I graduated in Political, Social and International Sciences at the University of Bologna. Both my bachelor and master thesis were focused on the topic of sustainable economics: an economic system with environmental and social issues at its core, and above all, that aims at ensuring wellbeing within planetary boundaries.
