Jean Leston

Before becoming an environmentalist, Jean worked in marketing, research and journalism for big UK and American companies. She has felt called to work on climate change ever since being caught in the terrible European heat wave of 2003. Since then she has worked as climate change campaign manager for the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN) and as part of WWF’s Climate & Energy team looking after low carbon transport as well as divestment, anti-fracking, climate finance, the UN climate talks, and communicating climate change. She has now decided to go freelance to focus on faith and the environment at this very important time.

Jean represents the Environmental Issues Network of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland on the Board.
