Chiara studied at the University of Padua, Italy, graduating in 2012 with a Master degree in Policies and Institutions for Human Rights and Peace. Her passion for human rights protection and international relations brought her to London for an internship in human rights education at the International Secretariat of Amnesty International. After this experience, she decided to remain in the UK and found a job in the third sector.
While working as a project officer in the charity sector, she became the Women, Rights and Climate Coordinator for Italian Climate Network (ICN), an Italian non-profit organisation committed to raising awareness on climate change. During her three years of collaboration with ICN, Chiara focused her activities on the consequences of climate change on people’s lives, analysing how to alleviate the struggle of vulnerable groups from a human rights perspective. She attended as a civil society observer the UNFCCC COP21, COP22, SBI46, COP23 and SBI48 creating a team to monitor the introduction of human rights principles in the Paris Agreement implementation, supporting the advocacy activities of the Women and Gender Constituency, and delivering a statement during the COP23 Closing Plenary.
