Dear Markus, actions have been more important for you than endless considerations. That was the reason why I appreciated your work. And the result is impressive: Never in the history of IFOAM, the organisation has had such a good standing. Excellent reputation as a relevant international stakeholder in agriculture, ecology and sustainable food systems. Good staff. Stable finances. Well structured decision making procedures. I'm convinced that other organic organisations are already aware of your profile. We will therefore not lose track on you. And Louise: I think you have similar talents. And I'm happy that this is the second time we've had a woman on top. Hopefully a little longer than last time, because we have to make a lasting - a sustainable - impact!
