Diplomé bio-ingénieur avec un master en gestion forestière, j’ai passé deux ans aux Pays-Bas sur la conception et gestion de projet et processus innovant. Je suis ainsi devenu un KnowMadic KaosPilots. C’est à cette occasion que j’ai découvert la facilitation avec « The Art of Hosting » et la « Deep Democracy » de Myrna Lewis. J’ai commencé à diffuser la démocratie profonde lors des weekend de Transition organisé par les Amis de la Terre. Ma rencontre avec Evelyne m’a permis de proposer pendant 3 ans des formations où nous croisions les perspectives de la Sociocratie et de la Démocratie Profonde. J’utilise les principes de DD dans le quotidien de mes projets. Depuis que j’ai rencontré l’Université du Nous (universite-du-nous.org), nous mixons nos pratiques de manière à proposer les meilleurs outils pour la gouvernance en cercle, la construction de consentement. Ce sont là des bases précieuses pour les entreprises et organisations qui se libèrent, augmentent leur agilité et adressent les défis de demain.

Graduated in Bioengineering with a master in Forest Management, I went for two years to the Netherlands and was involved in process and project design and management. I became a KnowMadic KaosPilots and came back to Belgium to become involved in transition. I joined Exposantd in 2009 to support sustainable sanitation development by setting up a Walloon network and work with people who were not used to work together. We produced a collective statement and a legislation proposal to improve the system of sanitation in Belgium. Since 2013, I have been working with EcoRes Sprl to manage sustainable projects and facilitate processes in various areas. We have been in charge of the complementary currency of Brussels (EcoIris), I ran the participative side of Agenda 21 for the city of Nivelles and coordinated the Regional plan for Circular Economy. Currently, I give training in group dynamics and decision making. Influenced by the UdN in 2014, I was first inspired by Art of Hosting and fully trained by Myrna Lewis to Deep Democracy. I transfered these skills to others through workshops and training in various settings, like Deltae programme for Transition, co-housing project or specific courses for team leaders. I am familiar with the Transition Network since I work in Ekopedia.org and Appropedia. I am part of the Belgian TN group since 2011 and became a board member of the National Hub in 2013. My co-housing project is developing with the Transition focus to develop resilience.
