Andrew Simms at Tedx Newham: Cancel the Apocalypse


Andrew Simms is the author of several books, including the bestselling Tescopoly. He is a nef Fellow and was nef's policy director for over a decade, also founding its work programme on climate change, energy and interdependence.

He trained at the London School of Economics and was described by New Scientist magazine as, 'a master at joined-up progressive thinking.' Andrew is a long-standing campaigner who coined the term 'Clone Towns' in nef's work on local economic regeneration, co-authored the ground-breaking Green New Deal, was one of the original organisers of the Jubilee 2000 campaign to cancel poor country debt, co-founded climate campaign onehundredmonth.org and devised 'ecological debt day.'

After witnessing at first hand over two decades of failed international efforts to solve critical problems ranging from extreme poverty to climate change, his latest book Cancel the Apocalypse: the new path to prosperity (2013) is the result of a search for something better.
