Ingrid joined the World Future Council in 2010.

Ingrid manages currently our „Himalayan Agroecology Initiative“, in partnership with IFOAM – Organics International, that facilitates the development of three comprehensive Roadmaps for Sustainable Food Systems in Bhutan, India and Nepal, in close cooperation with local partners (Alliance of Bioversity International-CIAT, UNDP India, LI-BIRD Nepal and Tarayana Foundation) and relevant stakeholders (financed by and with BMZ and IFAD). Until June 2022 she was our project manager of the Future Policy Award, our Oscar for best policies, which highlights exemplary laws and policies, in order to speed up policy action. In 2020/21, the international prize focused on inspiring and effective policies protecting people and the environment from hazardous chemicals (with SAICM, UNEP, UNITAR). Previously, the Award highlighted outstanding policies empowering youth (2019, with UNDP, ILO, IPU), policies scaling up agroecology (2018, with FAO and IFOAM), and policies combating desertification (2017, with UNCCD). In the past Ingrid has coordinated our Geneva Liaison Office and co-led the Zero Project, a global initiative to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Before joining the World Future Council, Ingrid worked at the UNESCO Chair for Religious Pluralism and Peace in Bologna, Italy, and collaborated with the late Professor Pier Cesare Bori (✝️), the then Chair of Human Rights and Moral Philosophy, University of Bologna. She holds a Master’s Degree (with honours) in International Relations at Bologna University. Ingrid is married and mother of twins.
