Director at Leuven 2030 | BelgiumEmpowerment! That’s the word most closely associated with the mission of Katrien Rycken, Director of Belgian company Leuven 2030. Katrien explores collaborative pathways that contribute to cities’ ambitious climate goals. This requires bold experimentation and the sharing of knowledge, experience, and lessons learnt. This is why Katrien creates a safe environment for action and exchange, explores how communities, partners, and organisations can unlock that intelligence and passion, and accelerates the distribution of leadership to create a resilient, sustainable, and socially just future.
