Emma Schembari
environmental consultant and researcher

"We have the advantage of learning from the mistakes made in the past: schools are a new and very important starting point"
Emma is an environmental consultant for the Public Administration, researcher at ISPRA and expert at the Ministry of the Environment for legal profiles of environmental damage and remediation. Mixing competence and creativity she involves with her work all stakeholders in environmental matters: she combines a traditional legal background, acquired at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, with an economic approach to law. Environmental research has then connected her with European policies: anticipating the times, she has aligned herself with the evolution of the concepts of sustainable development and circular economy. Her inclination to action and the development of good practices applied to companies and PA are the basis of her work: Syracuse is a laboratory where she tries to apply these good environmental practices to develop significant experiences. The cultural and economic backwardness of this land is not a handicap for her, but a challenge for the future.
