In these troubled times for media and for Europe, how can we support media independence, pluralism and language diversity through innovation and skills? How can we strengthen media’s understanding and coverage of EU policy developments at national and local level?

To address these challenges, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Boucher as Managing Director of Fondation EURACTIV, as of 16 April.

Until recently, Stephen was CEO of, France’s largest online media on sustainable lifestyles. With a wealth of experience in policy-making, notably at EU level, Stephen is particularly concerned about the lack of trust in media, and its implications for our democracies.

In this spirit, Stephen recently published the Petit manuel de créativité politique – Comment libérer l’audace collective (“Little handbook of political creativity”) before joining Fondation EURACTIV. He also currently teaches on matters related to policy innovation, civic techs and political influence at Sciences Po in Paris, at the Solvay Brussels School and at the Université Catholique de Louvain. A dual French-American citizen, Stephen graduated from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and from Sciences Po Paris.

He was previously director for European policy at the European Climate Foundation (ECF). Before the ECF, he co-directed for four years the Jacques Delors Institute (then called Notre Europe).

A hand over from me happened previously at the media company EURACTIV (chaired by Bart Becks and managed by David Mekkaoui). Like the EURACTIV media before, Fondation EURACTIV that I co-fathered now moves from teenage to adult growth!

Christophe Leclercq,


As Chairman of our foundation, the founder will hand over projects over time to Stephen, including the potentially promising pilot Stars4media, also known as #Erasmus4media. Also based on various memberships including the EU High-Level Expert Group on fake news, he will continue leading our media policy thinking, plus external speaking and teaching, and governance.

Fondation EURACTIV #Media4EU is non-profit structure under Belgian law, recognized of ‘public interest’ by the King of Belgians. It has led innovation, training and languages projects for the last 10 years. Stephen Boucher will, from summer 2018, think of an updated strategy, consult its Advisory Council, and then its Board, both made of renowned experts in EU policies and media innovation. This will build on the foundation three main activities: media innovation, executive education and media policy.
