Rik Jellema is a Dutch national who has adopted Brussels as his home city. He moved to Brussels in 1987 and joined the Flemish Green Party in 1991. In 2000, he became the first European non-Belgian to be elected to serve on Etterbeek municipal council (under Agalev).

After the 2006 local elections, Rik Jellema took over the leadership of the Ecolo-Groen group in Etterbeek municipal council.

In 2012 he became the first non-Belgian alderman to serve on a Brussels council and took on the following remit: public works and highways, public buildings (covering energy policy for public buildings, “garage communal”), street lighting, the design and maintenance of green spaces and contracts for sustainable neighbourhoods.
From 2005 to 2013, Rik Jellema chaired the regional section of Brussels Groen.

When he is not at his council office in Etterbeek, Rik Jellema works as a translator at the Council of Ministers of the European Union. His wife is French and they have two sons, both born in Etterbeek. Rik cycles on a daily basis, is a “Senne fool” and has many other interests.
