Sir Martin graduated with degrees in zoology and botany from Queens’ College, Cambridge in 1952. After completing his PhD in insect physiology, he began a period of research on the ecology and biogeography of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic regions. Martin then entered the UK Central Government, becoming Director of the Central Unit on Environmental Pollution and Chief Scientist in the Departments of the Environment and Transport. He led numerous UK delegations to international environmental meetings and served as the President of the Governing Council of the UN Environment Programme. He has been an important co-ordinator of national action to combat environmental pollution, through his roles namely as co-Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Forests, as Director General of the World Conservation Union and extensive work with the United Nations.

With such a vast wealth of experience, Sir Martin’s talk promises to be truly fascinating to anyone interested in the national and international responses to climate change and general environmental policy.
