Matthew loves the classroom and enjoys the 360° views of reality that Philosophy provides. He thought he was quite well educated before he attended a lecture on Ecology, and suddenly understood the true dimensions of the climate crisis. Following the example of Plato, he set up an Academy (in 2011) to allow his students to see the bigger picture and respond to it.

Any quick bio of Geert is a difficult task, such is the diversity of the organisations and projects that he has already founded. So, in a world that is eliminating biodiversity at such a terrible pace, it is inspiring to write about someone with a wonderfully diverse biography.

Nicolas, when he is not spinning his vinyl discs at 33.3rpm, is rolling the scientific material of the Climate Academy forward. He is passionate about soil, Ecology & Geology, and has grounded the different programmes of the Academy in a rich and firm pedagogical structure.
