David Shukman
Speaker, Consultant, Writer

For nearly twenty years, David Shukman played a leading role in the BBC’s coverage of the climate crisis with reports regularly featured on News at Ten, the Today programme and the BBC website. A pioneer of live broadcasting from remote locations from the Amazon to Antarctica, he won awards for highlighting the scale of planetary change. Glasgow was his tenth COP – and his last for the BBC. Among many tributes, Chris Packham thanked him for bringing environmental issues to public attention “in such a measured but poignant manner”. David’s TV documentary, Reporting from the Climate Frontlines, is on the iPlayer now – it reflects on the evolution of the science and of the politics of global warming. Now, after a career in journalism lasting almost four decades, David has started as an independent speaker and consultant.
