"Behind the Screens" - Alberto Lanzavecchia
Current position: Researcher and Associate Professor
Institution: University of Padova (ITA)
Field of study and Research: Ethical finance, microfinance, small business finance.
Tell us a bit about yourself: After a career experience in corporate banking and
management consultancy, I decided to dedicate myself to teaching and research to unveil
harmful business practices and foster sustainability. I value the search for consciousness
and evidence-based action the basis of each educational project that I design or participate
in. My passions are traveling, hiking, and interact with new cultures to learn as much as I can from the different ways of living the world.
What do you like most about our field of practice: The intrinsic connection
between sustainability, human rights and innovative finance, to help me as a teacher
to learn more and transmit it to my students.
Favorite Quote: "And I will make public what little I have learned so that
someone, more experienced than myself, may suggest the truth, and with his
work prove and condemn my error. In this way, I will be able to rejoice, at least,
that I have been an instrument through which truth has come to light."
If you could be anyone from any time period who would it be and why: We are indeed many other living beings who lived in previous times: Nothing is created
nothing is destroyed everything is transformed!
