Vanessa has more than ten years of experience as a climate and environmental journalist. She has a Masters Degree in Environmental Sciences from University of São Paulo (USP) and a lato sensu specialization in Environmental Law and Sustainable Strategic Management (PUC/COGEAE/SP). In 2014, Vanessa published a book called "A Última Gota" ("The Last Drop") about the most extreme water crisis of the last decades in São Paulo, one of the most populated cities in the world. Currently, she's an assistant editor at Um Só Planeta, the biggest editorial movement in Brazil to promote sustainable habits and face the climate crisis. The multi-platform project from Editora Globo won the Industry Innovation in Covering Climate Now Journalism Award 2022. In her everyday work, she plans, writes and edits special reports, podcasts, webinars and is constantly in collaboration with social actors that are pursuing real transformative change, including public and private organizations across all sectors. Um Só Planeta is a movement that praises the power of collaboration and transnational networks (in english, it means "One Only Planet"), so Vanessa is always looking for national and foreign stories that shows who is driving innovation in order to strengthen biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services and build more resilient, sustainable and just cities. As an academic researcher, she has published articles about plastic pollution and the exponential growth of endocrine disruptors in man-made chemicals that are omnipresent our world and their implications for human and environmental health.
