Ludovica Martella shares her insights and perspectives about women refugees, indigenous sovereignty, mental health, the importance of staying connected to natural rhythms of Earth and Cosmos, and cycles of reciprocity. A researcher at the New School, which was founded by European scholars and intellectuals fleeing persecution in the early 1900s, Ludovica integrates diverse disciplines in her scholarship, and connects many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in her activism.
Her three primary calls to action for all of us are:
2. Have more conversations (about the important things)!
3. Protect and support the youth!
Ludovica is a researcher currently enrolled in a post-master’s degree in Sustainability Strategy at the New School in New York City, where she is focusing on indigenous ecology and environmental justice. Ludovica also holds a Masters of Arts in International Relations from the Milano School of Policy, Management and Environment at The New School, and a Bachelor’s in Journalism from Fordham University. Ludovica’s work focuses on the repercussion of climate change on minority groups, such as women and indigenous people. In the past she has worked with United Nations Women and UN Development Programme in promoting and implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on these very topics. Currently she is an adult mentor for the youth climate organization “This is Zero Hour,” one of the leading organizers of the Global Climate Strike which happened September 20th, 2019.
