Sabrina Pricl, professor of Chemical Engineering and scientific director of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Nanotechnology at the University of Trieste, is the new Friuli Venezia Giulia delegate of WWF Italy. Professor Pricl will continue the work and dedication of the previous delegate, Maurizio Fermeglia, professor in Principles of Chemical Engineering at UniTS, who recently passed away.

In her new role, Prof. Pricl presents herself as a chemist with extensive experience in nanomedicine and nanotechnology: her work focuses on how nanoscale technologies can also be exploited to minimise the environmental impact of new materials as well as in the protection and restoration of natural ecosystems. 

“In WWF, I see a tremendous opportunity to use my expertise to introduce technological innovations to monitor and conserve biodiversity more effectively. 

Among the topics that are closest to my heart are climate resilience and the use of green technologies to mitigate the effects of climate change. I find it crucial to provide young people with environmental education on the importance of biodiversity and sustainable practices.”

This is the appeal that Sabrina Pricl wants to share with UniTS students:

‘Our university is a place of excellence and innovation, and I am convinced that you are a vital force for change. Your enthusiasm, creativity and commitment are essential to address the environmental challenges our planet is facing. As a WWF regional delegate, my goal is to promote environmental awareness and sustainability. I want to encourage you to be active players in protecting the environment. Change starts with each of us, and you have the power to make a difference. 

There are many ways in which you can contribute:

1. Participate in projects and initiatives: WWF organises numerous projects and awareness-raising campaigns. Participate and put your skills at the service of the environment. 

2. Educate and Raise Awareness: Share your knowledge with friends, relatives and colleagues. Raising awareness is a key step in creating lasting change. 

3. Adopt a Sustainable Lifestyle: Reduce the use of plastic, recycle, use environmentally friendly means of transport and try to reduce your environmental impact. 

4. Collaborate with Us: We are always looking for volunteers and collaborators. Your energy and commitment can have a significant impact.

Environmental protection is not only a responsibility, but also an opportunity. It is a chance to innovate, to find creative solutions to problems and to build a sustainable future. Your education and university background give you the tools to become a leader in this change. I invite you to contact me to find out how you can get involved in our initiatives and to share your ideas and proposals. Together, we can build a better, greener world.

Thank you for your attention and your continued efforts. I am confident that, with your help, we can do great things.’
