Franca writes on several sustainability subjects including eco-travel, renewable energy, transport, science and technology. She is both over-awed and overwhelmed by the amount of scientific research around sustainability and she hopes to do justice to some of the fascinating work going on this field.
With a scientific background and degrees in experimental and organisational psychology, she is interested by our relationship with the environment and how we connect to it individually and collectively. This extends to how we view and understand science in the sustainability debate and its representation in media.
From the nano to the planetary and from the quirky to the concerning she hopes to explore not just the science itself but how it is used, altered and sometimes ignored.
The founder of Sicilian Experience, Carmelina Ricciardello, tells Sublime about her aim to safeguard Sicily’s cultural richness through sustainable initiatives and slow tourism. With simplicity and an engaging hands-on approach she offers genuine exchange with the community and an insight into the island’s culinary treasures
