Emilia Cantero is founder and eco-guide of the (very first ever!) Eco Tours in Belgium. She is also a keynote speaker specializing in tips & tricks for an urban, ecological lifestyle.
Emilia was born in Argentina (Santa Fé) and grew up in Ghent. She studied Economic Sciences where her passion for circular economy was sparked. She is always on the lookout for the latest trends, inspiring experiences and passionate "changemakers".
Emilia believes that everyone can make a positive impact through her / his lifestyle. That is why she founded Mixua. The name Mixua refers to 'my choice'. It is a play on words between the Spanish word "mi" ("my") and the French word "choix" ("choice"). Each person can make a positive difference through their conscious choices.
