Ermanno Perotti is directly involved, personally and professionally, within the field of Youth Development through “Youth for a United World” Movement. He developed an early interest in international relations and interdisciplinary studies. He thus decided to take courses related to Human Relations and International Cooperation. He received his Master of Development Economics from the Univesity of Florence, and, earlier, a Bachelors of International Cooperation and Development from Sapienza University of Rome. He grew up and has been trained in an intercultural and interreligious environment, bringing him to develop a genuine interest and a particular awareness of other people’s needs. This has brought him to travel around the world, mostly in Asia, both for professional and personal purposes. His main occupation has been in the microcredit field, which has brought him to work, after a two-month training in Bangladesh, with Grameen Bank and with people in need living in conditions of extreme poverty. He now works as a project manager in Germany, with a focus on poverty-reduction strategies and disadvantaged youth empowerment. He enjoys spending his time practicing different sports, getting close to nature, painting, reading and playing music.
