Rediscovering the Heart and Soul of the Green Movement

He was formerly Director of Friends of the Earth, co-chair of the Green Party and, as Chairman of the UK Sustainable Development Commission until 2009, he spent nine years providing high-level advice to government ministers.

His most recent books are Capitalism as if the World Matters (2007) and The World We Made (2013) – which seeks to inspire people about the prospects of a sustainable world in 2050. Jonathon received a CBE in January 2000 for services to environmental protection.

About Inspiring People

The Inspiring People series is a joint venture between The North Wall and our principal sponsor, St Edward’s School. Our organisation both have a mission to educate and inspire and our hope is that this series will do just that: half of all tickets are offered free to local schools.
