Transformations in social-ecological systems influence and are influenced by our ways of seeing and being in the world. Drawing from traditions of participatory action research, whole system approaches, arts and humanities, Diego is studying how knowledge processes can be co-designed and co-created to support transformations in the context of climate change and poverty alleviation.

Diego is a part of the cluster Adaptive Governance in Ekoklim program; a transdisciplinary research program at Stockholm University that addresses issues concerning climate effects on biodiversity, ecosystem services and their management and governance.

Exploring cases in coastal Kenya, northern Mozambique in collaboration with the project SPACES, Diego is exploring the role of stories and narratives in processes of transformative learning. In the Iberian Peninsula, through EU-project Impressions Diego is exploring how artistic practices, like theater, film, and immersive environments, may contribute to the development of shared visions and support the development of integrated solutions in the context of high-end climate change.

Diego received a MSc in Environmental Science at the University of Bologna and a MSc on Environment, Globalisation and Governance at Stockholm Resilience Centre. Alongside his research on global environmental change, over the past 10 years Diego has worked within the fields of film and theater in Italy and Sweden.
