The Team

The Team Sophie Kisnorbo Project Coordinator
Stephen Brodbar Stephen once tagged along on a Cool Earth press trip to the Amazon, moonlighting as a journalist, and has been with us ever since. He calls New York City home (though one wonders why), where he works tirelessly developing Cool Earth’s education initiative. He founded the Cool Earth Teacher Fellowship, a program - and heart’s work - that supports the development of teachers through expeditionary learning experiences in the Amazon Rainforest.

The Team Johan is a rare thing. As well as one of Europe’s most successful businessmen, he was committed to actively protecting the environment well before it became fashionable. With Frank Field he came up with the idea of saving trees from the ground-up, he also thought of the name “Cool Earth.” JOHAN ELIASCH Co-founder and Trustee
The Team Mark pretty much invented independent travel when he launched the Rough Guides in 1982. As well as helping us all “make the most of your time on earth”, he has published the most interesting books on saving the planet and the best ones on world music. MARK ELLINGHAM Trustee
The Team Johan’s research as joint director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and role as chief scientist with Conservation International continues to be a global call to arms. Having led an international group's work to identify planetary boundaries, he has committed his career to lead the way on all things climate science, sustainability, and ensuring environmental thresholds are not crossed. Johan Rockström Trustee
The Team With fifty years of campaign experience, Frank Field has probably done more to improve the lives of children in poverty and low paid workers than any of his former parliamentary colleagues. In 2007 he turned his attention to climate change and launched Cool Earth. Frank Field Co-founder and Trustee
