Valeria works as a project manager for projects implemented by ALDA, with a specific focus on environment and sustainability.
Currently, she is managing projects funded by different European Programmes, such as DEAR, LIFE, HORIZON, ERASMUS+, on the topic of climate change adaptation, flood risk mitigation, fair and sustainable food consumption and production, territorial development, and Green Deal policies implementation.
During her previous work experience at the Europe Direct Network Office of the Province of Verona, she was responsible both for the dissemination and outreach of European Union policies and opportunities on the territory and for the planning and execution of complex projects, conferences, and training activities with various stakeholders, such as the 98 Municipalities of the territory, the Veneto Region, the Europe Direct Network and the DG Communication of the European Commission. In this context Valeria was able to deepen her knowledge on European environmental policies and the Green Deal, and to carry out concrete actions and initiatives to disseminate these policies on the territory.
She holds a master’s degree in law, acquired at the University of Trento – where she specialized in European Union Law. Her passion for Human Rights and equality led her to attend the 10th edition of the “Diversity Management and Gender Equality” Master course of the Giacomo Brodolini Foundation.
