Ingrid Fritsche

Project Manager – Scaling up Agroecology

Ingrid joined the World Future Council in 2010. Having worked in the non-profit sector for more than a decade, Ingrid has acquired a broad range of skills that include project development and management, policy research, budget and event management, media and communications, advocacy, staff supervision and team-building, publishing, multi-stakeholder partnerships, networking, fundraising and much more.

Ingrid manages currently our project „Scaling up Agroecology in the Himalayas“, which is focusing on how policy environments can better enable the scale up of agroecology and regenerative food systems – a project we carry out in partnership with IFOAM – Organics International. Until June 2022 she was our project manager of the Future Policy Award, 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. Previously, the Award highlighted outstanding policies empowering youth (2019), policies creating enabling environments for agroecology (2018), and policies combating desertification (2017). 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, 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.
