I am a Dutch environmentalist, public speaker, moderator, diplomat, and former strategic policy advisor at the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Over the past 28 years, I have worked on international security, humanitarian and geopolitical risk issues, and the linkage to the earth's accelerating environmental crisis. Currently, I work as an expert speaker and advisor on planetary change to academia, global NGO's, private firms, and international organisations. My online following is more than 200,000, mainly through my Twitter site @alex_verbeek. I am an associate at SEI, SIWI and the GCSP and a World Fellow at Yale University.
