Armando is an activist for sustainability, social justice, and local food systems. He has lived in a number of countries because, in his natural state, he is a globetrotter. In Washington, DC, before working at Neighborhood Sun, he has advocated for stronger climate change policies at the Institute for Policy Studies and the Bank Information Center. He has also helped manage a worker-owned local food Coop and did sales of rooftop solar. In Germany, he published research discussing climate change adaptation for agriculture and the sustainable economy. Armando has a Master in Global Change Management from the University of Eberswalde (Germany). He is fluent in English and Italian – and doesn’t miss a chance to keep up with his intermediate Spanish and German.
