Sara Giovannini

Communications & EU Policy

Sara speaks English, French, Italian, Spanish


Sara joined Energy Cities in February 2018. Before, she worked 4 years for the European Commission, first in the Directorate General for the Environment, then in the Joint Research Centre, as a communication and events officer.

Passionate about sustainability issues, working for Energy Cities allows her to directly contribute to the transition to a greener world, powered by renewable energy! Inside the office she is a social media geek, communicating and raising awareness on the potential of #renewables and #local action.

Outside the office, she is still a social media geek (catch her on @Giovannini_S) but also a foodie, a traveller and a runner.
