John Ashton


As the opening event of our 2013 lecture series, the Centre for Human Ecology presents what promises to be a fascinating evening.  This event is to be held on Tuesday 17th September 2013 at 18.00 in The Pearce Institute, 840-860 Govan Road, Govan, Glasgow G51 3UU.

One of the world’s top climate diplomats, John Ashton is now an independent commentator and adviser on the politics of climate change. From 2006-12 he served as Special Representative for Climate Change to three successive UK Foreign Secretaries, spanning the current Coalition and the previous Labour Government.

He was a cofounder and, from 2004-6, the first Chief Executive of the think tank E3G. From 1978-2002, after a brief period as a research astronomer, he was a career diplomat, with a particular focus on China. He is a visiting professor at the London University School of Oriental and African Studies, and a Distinguished Policy Fellow at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College.
