Andrew Medhurst

Extinction Rebellion UK

Climate & Ecological Emergency Independents, Rebel


Andrew is a full time volunteer for Extinction Rebellion UK. After a 30 year career in investment banking and pensions including HSBC and Lloyds Bank, he decided to resign to devote himself to climate and environmental activism. He was one of over 1,100 people arrested in London in April 2019 during the ‘International Rebellion’ and was an independent candidate in the European Elections and during the campaign was arrested again. He is particularly interested in how to grow Extinction Rebellion and engage with thought leaders in ways that are consistent with the emergency we now face and the fact that “our house is on fire”.
