Marta Ceroni

Marta Ceroni is the Program Director of the Academy for Systems Change, a nonprofit in Norwich, Vermont whose focus is transforming the economic system at the level of mindsets and visions of equitable wellbeing.  A forest ecologist by training, over the years Marta has seen the redesign of the economic system as the leverage point to get to “sustainability.” Before moving to the Upper Valley, Marta worked for 10 years as a research faculty at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at the University of Vermont. In her work she tries to balance scientific rigor, advocacy and mindfulness. Away from her desk, Marta finds happiness in modern dance, accordion playing, growing vegetables, and native Italian cooking.
