After having graduated in Political Sciences and Local Development, Filippo visited an Ecovillage for the first time in 2016 when he participated to the RIVE Summer Gathering in Damanhur and remained fascinated by that colorful and lively world. In 2017, he participated to the first Erasmus+ Youth Exchange in Hallingelille, Denmark, together with other 24 European young adults. Another deep and powerful experience that left a positive mark in his life. Since then he has been involved both with RIVE as a volunteer, with Yes To Sustainability as Youth Leader and with NextGEN Europe as Finance Coordinator. In 2019, he was a volunteer in Bagnaia for GEN Europe and RIVE Summer Gatherings. Since 2013, he is also a passionate Permaculture researcher and experimenter. He has been involved in many different agricultural projects both in Italy and abroad and he is currently a volunteer at the Permaculture project of Community of Living Ethics in Umbria, Central Italy, where he manages the community vegetable garden and olive orchard, together with other 3 volunteers.
