Robin Webster

Robin has been a researcher, journalist and communicator in the environmental sector for fifteen years, and on climate change specifically for the last decade. She first became interested in how we talk and think about climate change Рand the disconnect that often exists between the political debate around climate and the conversations held elsewhere Рwhilst working as a climate campaigner at Friends of the Earth. Robin subsequently helped start up the climate science and energy blog Carbon Brief, where she spent several years disentangling the intricacies of climate policy for a wider audience. She most recently worked as a researcher for the European Climate Foundation, and over the course of her career she has advised a large number of grassroots NGOs, universities and campaign organisations, writing extensively about food sustainability, the global energy system and climate impacts amongst other issues.
