Linda Kalcher

Senior Associate on climate policy, European Climate Foundation (ECF)

Linda joined the European Climate Foundation in 2015 as Senior Associate Climate Policy, leading on political communications within the organisation. She is working on the role of the EU in the international climate negotiations (UNFCCC) and leading a project that shares, synthesises and analyses how the European Union and EU countries are performing on the clean economy transition. The project is founded in the common vision that a transformational and prosperous clean economy is only possible with progressive European actors. In this context she initiated “Step Up Now” (www.stepupnow.eu), a platform to promote climate actions by investors, business, cities and regions.


Previously, Linda worked as political advisor for Social Democrat MEP Jo Leinen, gaining a thorough understanding of EU and international policy-making. In the European Parliament, Linda sharpened her ability to engage with a wide range of individuals and organisations in order to influence political decisions.
