Christophe Koninckx

Lead Strategist

What is your professional specialism or field of excellence?

I have been working on sustainability and transition projects in my job as a communicator since the early 2000s. I am at my best when acting as an assembler, bringing together the parts needed to ensure a project’s success.

What are the most fascinating projects you have worked on in recent months?

Coordinating the Week for the Promotion of Organic Agriculture (2002), because that was what triggered my interest. More recently, #WeAreTheClimateGeneration for COP21 with our European network and, just recently, the organisation of the first Cooperatives Forum.

Which book, person or project are you currently most inspired by?

The Barbarians, by Alessandro Baricco. It paints a sharp portrait of our rapidly mutating culture.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Since my four kids were born, I’ve always wanted to help ensure that the world I leave behind is liveable!
