Richard Barker

"What the Abolition of Slavery tells us about Climate Change”

Richard Barker is an Adviser and Investment Committee Member at Iona Capital, a specialist environmental infrastructure investor. He has been active in the low carbon space for over a decade having previously been CEO of the UK’s leading biogas company and also CEO of France’s largest aluminium recycling company. He is passionate about Climate Change and is a member of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps.

What the Abolition of Slavery tells us about Climate Change

Climate Change is today’s defining global moral issue. Our collective response to it will not only define the kind of planet on which future generations will live, but also how they will judge this current generation. By exploring another historical moral movement, the Abolition of Slavery in the British Empire, Richard will not only open a door on a poorly understood era of British history, but also provide insights into the development of the Climate Change movement and its possible future trajectory.
