The Board of Directors is made up of independent professionals working in a wide range of areas. Its main task is to define the guiding principles of the Foundation’s work and to decide on the priorities for its actions in accordance with the Foundation’s Charter.

Its independence is essential, hence why elected officials or people on the payroll of any structure of a political party– in whatever shape or form – are not entitled to sit on the Board.

On March 1, 2015 the members of the Board were as follows:

  • François Ost
    Jurist and Philosopher - Chairman of the Foundation's Board of Directors
  • Francis Blake
    Business manager
  • Brigitte Gloire
    Sustainable Development Advisor
  • Pierre Guilbert
    Business Consultant
  • Marie Geukens
  • Ludo Hilkens
