David Saddington is a young British environmentalist and climate change influencer who has revolutionised government policy and sustainable business strategy. From the United Nations to the beaches of Ibiza, David has worked to create game-changing collaborations to tackle climate change.
He has seen the impacts of climate change first-hand, from leading scientific expeditions to melting ice caps to working across Africa to build resilience to extreme weather. David's environmental work started 12 years ago when he was a teenager after he was impacted by flash floods in his hometown in North Yorkshire.
He was chosen by the UK Government to communicate climate change to the public in a landmark media campaign that reached over 3 million and worked with then Prime Minister Tony Blair to get climate change education into UK schools.
