“Vince contributed importantly to REEEP’s strategic development

in 2012/13 linking the organization’s strong past to an even stronger promise for the future.
At the same time he continued to keep REEEP’s communications ticking and developed specific products such as the Project Profiles 2011-12, condensing a large amount of information into clear, concise summaries; and organized REEEP’s 10 year anniversary event at Rio+20, creatively using the speed networking format for an innovative side event at a major international development conference.”

Martin Hiller Director General, REEEP (Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership)
“Vince mapped out an inspiring strategy for World Wetlands Day 2015;

a transformation from a generic day of awareness to a day focussed on youth aged 15-24 as transmitters to the wider public. This vision included a new website as the campaign’s focal point and a wide social media campaign.
He also authored the actual WWD hand-outs and the teacher/organizer guide. His photo contest brainchild attracted 2,200 entries from 80 countries around the world.”

Dr. Christopher Briggs Former Secretary General, Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

Turbo-charging World Wetlands Day >

Wetlands are essential to humanity – but almost no one knows this. For the Ramsar Convention, I developed a plan to accelerate this annual event in 2015. The result: triple the press mentions and quadrupled downloads in a single year.

Complex topics / effective materials >

Wetlands, sustainable livelihoods and disaster risk reduction are not easy to explain. I researched and wrote all materials for World Wetlands Day from 2016 to 2018. Classroom hand-outs/mini-posters, plus detailed guides for teachers & organizers.

Speed networking event at Rio+20 >

No look-alike panel discussions here! For the 10th anniversary of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) at the Rio +20 Conference, I organized a joint side event with UN DESA. The format: speed-dating as networking.
