🇪🇺 EU.


Frank Schwalba-Hoth - German by birth, European by conviction and global by heart, was one of the founders of the German Greens, one of their first members of parliament in Germany and in the European Parliament and former head of the EU-office of Greenpeace. He worked for environmental projects of the EU Commission and the Worldbank in countries of the former Soviet Union and Mongolia. As he has fallen in love with the capital of Europe and its unique atmosphere, he moved to Brussels as political advisor and networker. As he prefers an intensive life without stress, he decided to live without a phone.
