Fabio is in the final stages of the (M. Sc.) Interdisciplinary Public and Nonprofit Studies at the University of Hamburg. For his master thesis he is currently examining grassroots initiatives in Spain, that promote social and environmental transition with a focus on strengthening local resilience. Previously, he studied (B. A.) International Business and Intercultural Studies of the Hispanic World in Heilbronn and Montevideo. Since then, Fabio has been interested in holistic approaches that harmonise social and ecological aspects in particular. He tries to achieve this within his fields of interest, especially international development cooperation and humanitarian aid, by integrating local/community-based approaches.
