Project Manager
Cristiana
Cerri Gambarelli
Italy

Cristiana studied Economics and Management in the mountains of South Tyrol (Italy) and quickly opened her eyes to the destructiveness of greedy capitalism. She joined the green family as Team Leader during the digital volunteer campaign held by EGP for the European elections of 2019. She soon after found her radical happy place in FYEG and jumped head in into one year of full-time activism, where she later sat in the Editorial Board for the Ecosprinter. In her free time, she digs for inspiring artivistic projects, experiments with visuals for educational Instagram stories, and daydreams about the calmness of patrolling nights on the beach during her sea-turtle conservation work. Her goal is to spread methods of non-formal education and see the Green Wave unroll in Southern and Eastern Europe.
