Gabriella Abruzzo - Climate Officer
I support the Climate-smart Healthcare team in the design and delivery of the 2022 European Healthcare Climate Summit and the day-to-day management of the LIFE RESYSTAL project, Health Care Climate Challenge, and Race to Zero initiatives.
I hold a Master’s degree in International Relations and a specialised Master’s degree in European studies. I was previously a Project Coordinator, collaborating with my hometown municipality on an EU project called Urban Energy Pact (Urb-En Pact), with the goal to create net-zero territories by 2050. I took part in transnational meetings, organising and managing local meetings and events, and dealing with the project documents and deliverables. I completed an internship at Climate Alliance, carrying out in-depth research on literature and case studies to feed into the 2024 report on Urban adaptation of the European Environment Agency and contributed to the creation of different matrixes for the case studies and for the grey literature on climate adaptation.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading and playing guitar and ukulele. I like Japanese culture, especially literature and I practice Kendo, a Japanese martial art. I am a huge football fan; I watch football on a regular basis and I also play in a team.
