Board of Trustees

The European Environment Foundation is sad to say good-bye to one of its Board members, Dr. Gerhard Knies. He was a well-respected nuclear physicist, a member of the Club of Rome, and founder of DESERTEC Foundation. Dr. Knies was a solar pioneer, who devoted his work to ensuring a renewable energy supply by harvesting solar energy in the sun-drenched regions.

European Environment Foundation will always be grateful for his contribution to our organization. His visions and tirelessly commitment to a better world must not be forgotten.


The Board of Trustees guides the overall direction and strategic priorities of the Foundation and the Laureates Convention.
