“After more than 20 years dedicated to study, research and teaching environmental law, in private universities at first and now in a public university, is a big challenge to participate in an environmental Foundation looking forward to make significant changes.

“Ever since I was a little girl I have always been interested in the environmental protection, however, it wasn't until university where I got deeply involved with sustainable agriculture, science diffusion and environmental education. I volunteered, for almost two years, in a group where whose main mission was to promote sustainable development through environmental friendly agriculture techniques.
I truly believe that education can change the situation of a whole country and I believe the same with environmental education”
