About Me

I am an experienced sustainable tourism and active tourism expert, with international background and specialization in the Italian, Spanish and Slovenian markets.

In 2018 I founded Smart&Green Adventure, a marketing consultancy specifically dedicated to active tourism and ecotourism businesses. In the meanwhile, I collaborated for 2 years with BikeSquare, an Italian startup specialized in electric bike tours and smart mobility systems. With BikeSquare, in 2018 we presented a COSME project to expand an e-bike network to Spain and Portugal from one side and to Slovenia, Serbia and Montenegro on the other side, but the project wasn't among the first selected.

I have experience in OTAs (online travel agencies), tourism marketplaces (Viator, Get Your Guide, Musement), management software (Rezdy, Fareharbor, Booking Kit, Bokun), and digital marketing (SEO, Google Ads, social media marketing).

I have excellent networking skills and European project planning experience.

Specific Challenge: A clear commitment of the European Green Deal is that “transport should become drastically less polluting”, highlighting in particular the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in aviation and waterborne transport. In aviation, traffic volumes are expected to increase significantly by 2050 and the sector is already generating 14% of the EU GHG emissions from t ...

Specific Challenge: Underpinned by knowledge in the latest IPCC and IPBES reports, large-scale ecosystem restoration is urgent – the window of opportunity is closing rapidly. It needs a systemic approach to deliver tangible benefits on the European Green Deal actions for climate (mitigation, adaptation and disaster risk reduction), biodiversity, zero pollution and sustainable food systems (from ...

Specific Challenge: All areas of the European Green Deal, from climate action to zero pollution, require considerable changes in societal practices and in the behaviour of individuals, communities, and public and private organisations. These changes concern, for example, mobility behaviour, minimising traffic-related emissions and energy/resource consumption, protecting or restoring biodiversit ...

Specific Challenge: Fit for purpose and sustained ocean and sea observations are essential for understanding and forecasting ocean behaviour. Measures to protect marine social-ecological systems and support the blue economy are based on these insights and forecasts. 10-20 years ago, marine data from these observations were difficult to find, only accessible through long and sometimes costly neg ...

Specific Challenge: The science underpinning the European Green Deal has outlined what is at stake in terms of the impacts of climate change, the need to adapt to them, and the need to pursue decarbonisation pathways towards net zero. However, the challenges of mitigation and adaptation will ultimately be met by business and investors, government, and citizens. These actors therefore need to be ...
