Confronting Today’s Climate Emergency

In this talk the renowned author and campaigner Jonathon Porritt will discuss how we can tackle the climate crisis.

Jonathon Porritt, Co-Founder of Forum for the Future, is a ‘veteran campaigner’ and eminent writer, broadcaster and commentator on sustainable development.

He is involved in the work of many NGOs and charities as Patron, Chair or Special Advisor. He was formerly Director of Friends of the Earth (1984-90); co-chair of the Green Party (1980-83) of which he is still a member; a Trustee of WWF-UK (1991-2005) and a member of the Board of the South West Regional Development Agency (1999-2008).

He stood down as Chairman of the UK Sustainable Development Commission in July 2009 after nine years of providing high-level advice to Government Ministers.

His most recent book, Hope in Hell, was published in June 2020. His other books are The World We Made (2013), Capitalism As If The World Matters (Earthscan, revised 2007), Globalism & Regionalism (Black Dog 2008) and Living Within Our Means (Forum for the Future 2009).

Jonathon received a CBE in January 2000 for services to environmental protection.
