European Climate Pact Ambassador in Belgium
As Vice-Minister-President of the Flemish Government and Minister of internal affairs, integration and living in diversity, I want to do everything in my power to encourage ambitious climate actions. I believe in the tremendous potential and willpower of local governments to implement real solutions on the ground. That is why I took the initiative to create a new ecosystem of cooperation between local governments and the Flemish government. That became our Local Energy and Climate Pact, now signed by 293 out of our 300 local governments.
