Richard Fuller is an Australian-born, U.S.-based engineer, entrepreneur and environmentalist best known for his work in global pollution remediation. In June 2018, he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in recognition of his service to conservation and the environment.
Rich Fuller is an environmentalist, and a social entrepreneur at heart. He has worked for 25 years on pollution issues in the developing world, creating both Pure Earth and the Global Alliance on Pollution and Health and is also the driving force behind the Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health.
Fuller has noted that "over the last couple of decades, climate change has taken over as the key environmental issue. ... and pollution has simply dropped off the map. This is an extraordinary result and one we really need to turn around."
During his appearance at the Salisbury Forum, he will address us on the global issue of pollution, exploring its scope and impact, and how it connects with climate and other agendas. He will describe the ways one can make a difference at a global level, a lesson in creating change for good in a complex world.
