Graham Ennis is founding Director of the Omega Institute in Brighton, UK, a ‘micro’ think-tank staffed by a team of retired scientists working on climate change and energy issues.
Formerly a British Aerospace engineer, in January 2001 Ennis organized and convened the First International Field Propulsion Conference sponsored by NASA, at the University of Sussex, attended by leading international scientists. At the Omega Institute and Institute for Policy Research & Development, he is currently researching the latest scientific data and its implications for the convergence of multiple global crises. Ennis works closely with the Institute for Science and Society, Friends of the Earth, the Apollo-Gaia Project, and many other organizations.
He is also a tireless human rights activist, having done emergency aid work in Bosnia during the 1990s conflict, and currently working informally with Reprieve and several activist organizations on extraordinary rendition and other civil liberties campaigns. Ennis has also researched and written for The Ecologist magazine.
