Originally from the UK and with a strong business consultancy background Jon left that path in search of a more meaningful contribution and in his 2006 publication, Your Planet Needs You, he mapped the challenges we face in creating and living a new future. This book, and his passion for sharing its message in practical ways, was so resonant with the work of the Pachamama Alliance that he was invited to join that team in San Francisco in 2007. Since then he has helped develop their programs and taken them to places around the world, from China to Ecuador, and New Zealand to India. From this, and his experience as a committed activist in his local Bay Area communities, e has gathered a wealth of stories about what’s possible for the human family.
