Tom Smith was raised out in the sticks in the UK, in the only village in Europe that doesn’t have a pub. For a youngster, this isn’t too much of a worry though, and he spent most of his childhood swimming in brooks, collecting fossils, and looking after his pet donkey that he rescued from the circus. He’s always had an affinity for the environment, sustainability and behaviour, and has just finished studying Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol, which he balanced alongside his passion for activism, photography, wheeling and dealing old bicycles, and staring up at the incredible universe.
Tom has been a keen eco-activist, attending Copenhagen climate summit, organising an event which taught hundreds of young people the skills to tackle climate change, and setting up a photography exhibition in London on sustainability and the urban environment. He also helped to build the foundations of an eco-tourism site in Java, Indonesia.
