Stephen Lezak lives on planet Earth, and he likes it here. His work focuses on telling stories, driving change, and building coalitions that advance justice and flourishing for humanity and our companions. He is an expert on environmental governance in general, and the politics of climate change in particular.

He works as a researcher, a freelance journalist, a policy expert, a think-tanker, a PhD student, and (rarely) a consultant. He's worked across the world, from the Gobi Desert of Mongolia (above) to the sagebrush steppe of the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, USA.

He's received numerous awards and honors for his work, including a 2019 Gates Cambridge Scholarship.

In his spare time, he volunteers as a mountain guide for the nonprofit youth group, Post 58, and plays folk guitar.
