Event description

Description

Craig Bennett: Craig, as chief executive of Friends of the Earth, led the green NGO in a bold campaign to stay in the European Union because membership was good for the UK’s environment.

Now, with so much political uncertainty, what next for our environment in a post-Brexit future?

Craig will deliver an engaging essay centring on why any form of Brexit – from soft to hard, or scrambled - can’t be allowed to make us the ‘dirty man of Europe again’, and what needs to happen to make protections for the environment as strong as possible.

Craig started as CEO of Friends of the Earth in 2015, following five years directing their policy and campaigns. Under Craig's leadership, Friends of the Earth has led the fight against fracking, the reversal of bee population decline, and campaigned for clean air. As chief executive he is shaping Friends of the Earth up as an organisation fit to fight the environmental challenges of the new century, with a focus on grass-roots campaigning.

Craig is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).
