“…he aimed for a web of institutes in different EU cities rather than a set of spokes from a single central hub.”

David Baldock, Director Institute for European Environmental Policy

His ease and fluency in several languages enabled him to attract a range of nationalities to the institute and begin multilingual activities from the very start. More strikingly still, he could immerse himself in the culture of the tongue in question, bringing to life four or five national perspectives in a single speech. It was no coincidence that he aimed for a web of institutes in different EU cities rather than a set of spokes from a single central hub. This fitted both the environmental and the cultural message.

Back to all memories...
