Maria Laura joined UNESCO-IHE in 2002. She was working both as Social Cultural Officer and as Alumni Officer until this year, when, from July 2016, she became fully dedicated to Alumni matters.
Throughout the year I organize, coordinate and implement alumni activities to provide lifelong learning and strengthen the alumni network, groups relations as well as regional and inter-regional ties for cooperation. I am a creative and active person who loves to connect people. I love my job and I enjoy delivering a good service to all professionals who form the UNESCO-IHE alumni community. I have been in touch with many participants and alumni, from whom I have learned immensely and they will remain in my memory with appreciation forever.' In the future I hope to continue increasing the interaction between the Institute and our alumni as well as increasing their participation as ambassadors of UNESCO-IHE.''
