Angela Alaimo, Geographer Organization: University of Trento My name is Angela and I am a geographer. I study the different forms of spatial organization created by human groups to inhabit Earth. Today all places are interconnected, thanks to exchanges and to real time communication. But they are not at on the same level: some have more power than others. That is why I study the flows and the networks connecting places, peoples and cultures, producing different forms of proximity and distance. To me, doing geography means creating connections and producing global visions, to contribute imagining new possible worlds, more equitable and sustainable, for humans and the environment alike. To be a geographer i studied in University, but I mainly travelled and worked in different parts of the world. Geography is done with feet: one needs to walk to meet places and people, not only with the mind, but with the whole body. Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Chiara Lainati, anthropologist Organization: Catholic University/Soleterre Strategie di Pace I am an anthropologist, I research on the field, I create and write projects starting from the needs and the resources of the places, together with their inhabitants and their policy makers. Sometimes i manage the projects or I accompany their realization. My works are very diverse but I specialized in international migrations and local processes for social cohesion in Italy and Europe. I studied anthropology at University. My interest for the arab world brought me to study the Arabic language and to work for 4 years in the North African countries. When i came back I could make the most of my knowledge of these countries and integrate it with that of migratory experiences and the challenges to coexistence that these bring. I currently work in Soleterre, an NGO, and since 2003 I am a lecturer in anthropology in a master within the Università Cattolica, in Milan.
