STEVE EMMOTT, dell’Esecutivo dei Verdi europei dal 2009, é morto dopo una brevissima malattia il 24 settembre scorso. Il mio ricordo affettuoso.
Steve was a proud green and a citizen of the world. He was serious and focused and he had this amazingly sweet and bright smile that sometimes surprised me. I met him when he arrived in the Green Group in the EP many years ago and he started to work on GMOs, which what was then still an exotic and certainly not mainstream issue; he gave a crucial contribution to make it one of the most successful and impactful campaigns for the Greens.
