Daniela Passeri
Sustainability Track Instructor

I was born in Venice, I have been living in Milano for many years and I finally settled in Siena.

I have been working as a journalist for most of my life, travelling a lot and investigating into environmental and food issues.

Beside that, I try very hard to build a food citizenship in Siena, being the president of a Solidarity Purchase Group (Gruppo di Acquisto Solidale, GAS) and other related activities.

I grow my vegetable garden and I cook every day (also for my dog).

I belong to the Associazione per la Decrescita (Degrowth Association) that promote a downscaling of production and consumption that increases human well-being and enhances ecological conditions and equity on the planet.


After attending the School of Journalism, I graduated in Political Sciences in Siena (2004).

In 2010, I attended some seminars by Arsia (Agenzia regionale per lo sviluppo e l'innovazione in Agricoltura, Florence) on short food supply chains.

In 2012, Master in Environmental Law (University of Siena)

Member of the organizing committee of the III International Conference on Degrowth, Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice (Venice, 2012).
