Dr Aled Jones: Director, Global Sustainability Unit, on The Big Picture

Our first speaker for the autumn season is Dr Aled Jones, Director of the Global Sustainability Institute (GSI) at Anglia Ruskin University. Prior to this he was Deputy Director at the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership
He will share with us his thoughts on the big picture, influencing government, policy and regulation. 
This is an area in which he has impressive and wide ranging expertise: including chairing the working group on climate finance within the Capital Markets Climate Initiative on behalf of Greg Barker, the Minister for Climate Change, sitting on the UNEP FI insurance sector working group and setting up the Banking & Environment Initiative. He has also worked in academia, consultancy and a high tech startup.
He leads a number of research projects in climate finance, energy and behaviour, and resource management.
Given the current horrible mess we’re in, with the government backsliding on its green promises and the financial system in meltdown, this should be a fascinating opportunity to hear from someone who’s at the heart of trying to improve the situation
