Matthew Shribman - Bio 1

Matthew Shribman is a scientist, environmentalist, speaker, advisor, serial founder, author and descendent of the same ambitious fish as everyone.

Matthew’s science communication videos online have been viewed tens of millions of times and featured in VICE, whilst his popular science podcast is supported by one of the co-founders of QI, and he once gave the first ever TEDx talk from a bathtub.

His serial founding of environmental projects has led to a 100x increase in the UK’s reforestation plans, numerous institutions dropping beef in favour of plant-based foods, and a CO2 widget used by national broadcasters in Japan and Canada. Matthew also works to support Stop Ecocide International and the Cambridge Centre For Climate Repair.

Matthew has taught, consulted for and mentored people all around the world: Olympic athletes, politicians, climate activists, corporate executives and celebrities.

Most recently, Matthew is co-founder and CEO of AimHi Earth, whose team is racing to activate millions of nature-first thinkers, to bring about a future where nature has a seat at every boardroom, political and kitchen table.

AimHi Earth is supported by leading lights like Sir Jonathon Porritt, Chris Packham CBE, Dr Cécile Girardin, Paul Hawken, Sir Tim Smit, Lord Jim Knight and Sabra Noordeen. Its training programmes - which Matthew created - have changed the direction of companies, the kits of football players, the speeches of Olympic medallists, the funding strategy of charities and the output of broadcasters.

In the distant past, Matthew was a popular musician. He had support from Radio 1, NME, the Guardian, and was booked for festivals like Glastonbury and Latitude.

Matthew graduated from the University of Oxford with a 1st Class Master’s degree in Chemistry. His Master’s thesis was on bird migration in magnetic fields (biophysics and spin chemistry).
