Jonathon Porritt

Add To Speakers List

One of Britain’s most famous environmentalists and environment speakers, Jonathon Porritt is best known for founding the sustainability charity Forum for the Future and his work in the early days of the Green Party. For over 50 years he’s worked as a climate activist, spreading his message far and wide, and now he’s available to book as an after-dinner speaker at your next corporate or personal event. 

In the mid-1970s, Jonathon joined the Ecology Party (now known as the Green Party), a political party that placed sustainability and environmental issues at the heart of its policies and ideology. During the 70s and 80s, he held a number of high-profile roles within the party including working as its Chair. His influence saw the party grow exponentially, becoming much more competitive in elections and more well-known to the general public. By the time he took a step back from politics, the Green Party had established itself as a viable alternative to the mainstream parties, and seen membership grow from just a few hundred to way into the thousands. Often regarded as one of the country’s best environment speakers, when you hire Jonathon as a speaker at your event, he’ll be able to discuss his political career at length explaining how he achieved growth for the party, and his view on how governments today are tackling environmental concerns. 

By the late 90s, Jonathon decided that he could make more of a difference away from politics, and in the world of not-for-profit organisations. This led him to create Forum for the Future, a sustainability charity that provides planning, future-proofing and advice to businesses on how to best make their operations sustainable and environmentally friendly. Over the years, Forum for the Future has partnered with the likes of Kellogs and Unilever. As well as this, Jonathan has worked as a patron for Population Matters, a charity concerned about the impact that population growth will have on the health of the planet. Plus, he’s written a whole host of books and articles on issues surrounding climate change.        

Unfortunately, the current climate crisis looks bleak and as one of the most clear-sighted environment speakers on the circuit, Jonathon can take a pragmatic and realistic approach to the issue when discussing it at his events. However, he can also provide hope by outlining the potential solutions and ways we can improve the climate situation.
