Who I am

Chiara Soletti BioEverything begins in Vicenza, a city in the Venetian province in Italy, and to be born in a land full of history and beauty has been a privilege: a small capital of the Renaissance, embellished by Andrea Palladio, the architect who has been able to convert classicism into a modern language of universal harmony.

Then there was Padua, where I attended one of the oldest universities in the world, today certainly among the most renowned for the study of human rights: authoritative lecturers and a growing desire to switch from books to fieldwork. Moving to London, home to major humanitarian organisations, was the next step, essential to finding my way in the human rights field.

Over time, my interests have taken a more precise focus: the social consequences of climate change, with particular regard to minorities and gender issues. The commitment to this field leads me to participate in the most significant events on the theme, from the Convention of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) of Paris onwards.
