Honorary Presidency

Another important decision made by the latest General Assembly was to grant the title of Honorary President of the Green European Foundation to Pierre Jonckheer, for his contributions to establishing GEF, developing its political profile and successfully serving as its Co-president between 2008 and 2016. As Honorary President, Pierre will continue contributing to GEF on an ad hoc basis with his knowledge and experience, and will remain involved in some of the GEF’s projects.
