Wilfried Bialik


As the Vice Pres­i­dent, Wil­fried brings in his exper­tise in polit­i­cal advo­ca­cy and lob­by­ing on nation­al and inter­na­tion­al lev­el. With his broad net­work of insti­tu­tions and peo­ple, he enrich­es ECSWE’s con­nec­tions both towards oth­er Stein­er Wal­dorf insti­tu­tions and towards pol­i­cy mak­ers. Fur­ther­more, his strength lies in long-term think­ing and organ­i­sa­tion­al devel­op­ment skills. He makes clear analy­sis and has a struc­tured approach to the Board’s tasks, while keep­ing in mind the legal perspective.
