“Since when I was little, I have always been fascinated by nature, and when growing up I understood that human activities were jeopardizing it, I felt personally concerned. Step by step I oriented my studies and professional experiences, as well as my life as a private citizen in this direction. Joining Terra’s mission is another step to give my contribution to make the current economic and social systems more sustainable!”
In addition to holding a Master’s Degree in Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy, Alice Piccolo gained many professional experiences in the field of sustainability both in academia as a research assistant, and in international organizations such as the Regional Academy on the United Nations or the European Committee of the Regions. Thanks to these experiences she has developed her written and oral communication skills, analytical and system thinking skills. Furthermore, she has extensive knowledge of issues related to the calculation of the ecological footprint, food waste, monitoring and evaluation, SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), EMAS certification and Climate-Smart Agriculture.
