Ecological philosopher and green activist

I’m an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of East Anglia, an author, a blogger, and – closest to my heart – a climate and environmental campaigner.

  • I am an author of over a dozen books. Many of my books focus on Wittgensteinian philosophy, others on the climate crisis, and others still on the intersection between the two.
  • Until recently, I was a frequent spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion. Previously, I was a spokesperson, national parliamentary candidate, European parliamentary candidate and councillor for the Green Party of England and Wales. I also formerly chaired the ecological think tank Green House.
