Paul Gilding

Professor, Cambridge University Program for Sustainability Leadership

We all buy stuff we don’t need with money we haven’t got to impress people we don’t like.

Paul Gilding has spent 35 years trying to change the world, doing everything he can think of. He’s served in the Australian military, chased nuclear armed aircraft carriers in small inflatable boats, plugged up industrial waste discharge pipes, been global CEO of Greenpeace, taught at Cambridge University, owned and run two ground-breaking sustainability focused companies and been a close confidant and advisor to the CEOs of some the world’s largest companies. 

He lives on a farm in southern Tasmania with his wife, where they grow blueberries and raise chickens, sheep and their children.
